"The Red One" is a 1918 short story by Jack London. The story revolves around Bassett, a scientist collecting butterflies in the jungle of Guadalcanal. When he accidentally discovered a large red sphere worshipped by the local natives, he forgets about his original aim and becomes fatally obsessed with the strange object. Highly recommended for lovers of London's work, "The Red One" is not to be missed by fans of early science fiction and the short story form in general. John Griffith London (1876 – 1916), commonly known as Jack London, was an American journalist, social activist, and novelist. He was an early pioneer of commercial magazine fiction, becoming one of the first globally-famous celebrity writers who were able to earn a large amount of money from their writing. London is famous for his contributions to early science fiction and also notably belonged to "The Crowd", a literary group an Francisco known for its radical members and ideas. Other notable works by this author include: “Martin Eden” (1909), “The Kempton-Wace Letters” (1903), and “The Call of the Wild” (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
