Publisher's Summary

Vril, the Power of the Coming Race (1870) by Edward Bulwer-Lytton is an early science fiction novel. The setting is a strange subterranean world inhabited by beautiful entities that resemble the angels described in scripture. The advanced beings known as Vril-ya live underground - using the mysterious "Vril" as an energy source - but intend to reclaim the surface of the earth as their own. The narrator ends up deep inside the Earth via a natural chasm in a mine shaft. He is rescued by the Vril-ya, an advanced race that use telepathic powers, fly with artificial wings, are served by automata, and possess formidable weapons. After a long stay, things go wrong and the protagonist escapes back to the surface with the help of Zee, one of the Vril-ya.

the vril is my new favorite hole to tumble down.

so many outstanding connections with the power and rise of the feminine divine emerging on the surface. I see why the patriarchy trembles.

Strange

I guess with women there will always be love regardless of species. A few interesting point I will have to review of similar names an words and we have found underground tunnels, and ancient text do discuss different life forms. I was completely engaged until the wedding proposal.

Nice

Interesting story about the origins of the Thule society’s belief. Narration is well done, and although it’s a work of fiction it’s easy to see why the Vril society of Germany strongly believed in it.
