The Age of Miracles produces an amazing suicide and a triumphant return from death. A million dollar prize is offered – and won – for the most perfect automation. „The Revenge of the Robot and Other Tales” is a collection of thrilling sci-fi stories from mechanistic progress, written by Otis Adelbert Kline, who was an adventure and science-fiction novelist of the pulp era. Kline is perhaps best known for his novelistic feud with Edgar Rice Burroughs. He wrote „Planet of Peril” (1929) and two other novels set on the planet Venus and written in the storytelling form of the John Carter of Mars novels, prompting Burroughs to write his own stories set on Venus. In return, Kline wrote two novels set on Mars, as well as several jungle adventurers quite reminiscent of Burroughs’s Tarzan.
