Electrical Experimenter (05:12) April 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"We must get hold of Professor Firman right away," I declared, finally. "He should understand this. Go tell your father, Ava, while I locate the professor." With the pocket 'phone I reached Firman in a few moments. To my demand that he come at once he turned a deaf ear. Nothing could take him from his work. Fervently, I cursed his stubbornness, but the difficulty was but a minor one. If the mountain would not come to us we could readily go to the mountain."
This is the issue of Electrical Experimenter from April 1918. The cover features “At War With the Invisible” and concludes the science fiction story begun in the March 1918 issue.
