This Halcyon Classics ebook is Francis Stevens’ (Gertrude Barrows Bennett) dystopian future history novel THE HEADS OF CERBERUS.

After inhaling a strange gray dust, the protagonist awakes in the year 2118 in a dystopian Philadelphia–a totalitarian city where every aspect of life is rigidly regulated by the state.

Gertrude Barrows Bennett (1883–1948) (who published under the pseudonym Francis Stevens) was the first major female writer of fantasy and science fiction in the United States. Bennett wrote a number of highly acclaimed fantasies in the 1910s and early 1920s, and has been called “the woman who invented dark fantasy.” While she lived until 1948, Bennett evidently published no new works after 1923.

This unexpurgated edition contains the complete text with errors and omissions corrected.
