The Sky Man (1910) is a novel by Henry Kitchell Webster. Written at the height of Webster’s career as a popular author of magazine serials- The Sky Man is a story of invention- mystery- and murder. Inspired by recent advances in human aviation- Webster crafted a thrilling work of science fiction that continues to entertain and astound over a century after it appeared in print. “For many hours—Cayley was too much of a god today to bother with the exact number of them—he had been flying slowly northward down a mild southerly breeze. Hundreds of feet below him was the dazzling- terrible expanse of the polar ice pack which shrouds the northern limits of the Arctic Ocean in its impenetrable veil of mystery.” Looking on the world below- Philip Cayley entertains thoughts he has never had before. Is he human- or something greater? What limits stand before him now that he has mastered the sky? A seasoned veteran of the United States army- Cayley is an aviator and self-taught inventor who struggled for years to perfect human flight. Now equipped with an aerodynamic wingsuit- he soars above the Arctic on a research mission. Crossing the expanse of ice- he sees a man below in similar leather clothing. Behind him- a group of men in walrus skin jackets begins to gain ground. From the safety of the sky- Cayley watches in horror as the man in the lead is struck by a deadly dart- tumbling down an immeasurable crevasse. Careful to avoid discovery- Cayley circles back to his ship- entirely unprepared for what lies ahead. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript- this edition of Henry Kitchell Webster’s The Sky Man is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.
