I hope you guys don't mind me constantly resurrecting this old thread. I just picked up a copy of Science Fiction: The Early Years
from the local library, and the whole thing is chock full of fascinating SFF novels we've yet to record.Ie've found some really interesting projects that could be added to this ever-expanding list:
Gloriana, or The Revolution of 1900
(Lady Florence Dixie) - Feminist utopian fiction that features cross-dressing, kidnapping, and a matriarchal political revolution. Looks really, really fun.
Yezad: A Romance of the Unknown
(George Babcock) - Somewhat bizarre mixture of interplanetary fiction and occult teachings. A pretty wild one.
Hallie Marshall: A True Daughter of the South
- Alternate history story about a man who travels to an alt-United States where the Confederacy won the Civil War. Somewhat utopian in tone. Reportedly not quite as racist as that summary makes it sound (although still pretty racist).
The Struggle for Empire
(Robert William Cole) - Early space opera, described in the book as a sort of 19th-century E.E. Smith.
The Queen of Appalachia
(Joe H. Borders) - Bizarre story about a magical secret monarchy somewhere in the heart of Kentucky. Seems like a pretty nutty book.
I'll post more as I stumble upon them...
