The revolt of man by Walter Besant

Excerpt from the introduction:

It is now fourteen years since this book appeared anonymously. At first, the story stood cold and shivering, disregarded by the world. Six weeks, however, after its production a highly appreciative review in one of the most important journals caused people to inquire after it. Since then it has gone through many editions.

Everyone who has written stories knows the unaccountable difference there is between the ease and delight of writing some and the difficulties and troubles which attend the writing of others. The Revolt of Man was written during a certain summer holiday; day by day chapter by chapter was read out, as it was finished, to two ladies. It is needless to say that their comments on the progress of events were often most valuable. Above all, I may now acknowledge their advice as to the conclusion of the story. At first, it ended in a real battle. 'Let the Revolt of Man be bloodless,' said my advisers. It is bloodless. The advice was excellent, and I followed it; and now, after fourteen years, I take this opportunity of thanking them.
