The Secret of the League

The Secret of the League: The Story of a Social War (1907) by Ernest Bramah

Also published as What Might Have Been this book is said to have been an influence on George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).

"According to William White, "a rather weak forecast of England under a Socialist government." Men with mechanical wings are featured.... As a Socialist dystopia, it is apparently highly regarded by Ayn Rand enthusiasts. Originally printed anonymously." -- Mike Berro
