SummaryThis novel, one of [the author's] first forays into the science fiction genre, concerns a mad surgeon-turned-vivisectionist who, in his laboratory on a remote island, performs ghoulish experiments in an attempt to transform animals into men, with monstrous results. It is one of [his] earliest and most sinister personifications of the scientific quest to control and manipulate the natural world, and, ultimate, human nature itself. -- Back cover.
