Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton PC (25 May 1803 – 18 January 1873), was an English politician, poet, playwright, and
novelist. He was immensely popular with the reading public and wrote a stream of bestselling dime-novels which earned him a considerable fortune. He
coined several phrases that would become clichés, especially "the great unwashed", "pursuit of the almighty dollar", "the pen is mightier than the
sword", as well as the famous opening line "It was a dark and stormy night".
According to the wiki. But he is noted for something, he is was a Rosicrucian and an early science fiction writer who was heavily influence by the
occult. One of his most famous books is called The Coming Race, with which you can read in its entirety here:
In short the book is about a group of people who lived underground as the result of a conflict many thousands of years ago. They have higher level of
technology. The main character finds a mineshaft which allows him to find these people and he interacts with them. The book was published in 1871.
But there are some people who believe that this is a true story, that these people are actually the Vril, who started a secret society in Germany
which led to the creation of Adolf Hitler who influenced his interests in occult power. In other words, this is the work that led to the creation of
the Vril Society, from whence we get the famous Hannebu, or saucer shaped craft that the Nazis supposedly built.
I am reading this book now, since I've never read it before. I thought some of you might be interested in it.
For those interested, here is the wiki on the book:
