OPUS#058 Island of Unreason, The

Title: The Island of Unreason
Author: Edmond Hamilton
Year: 1933
Storylen: short story
“Reprinted from Wonder Stories, May, 1933, this very readable story tells of the island where misfits and incorrigibles are isolated from civilization in the future” – Gammell, Leon L., The Annotated Guide to Startling Stories, Starmont House, 1986, p. 54
Reason, we hope, is being made more and more the guide for our actions. What must this tendency ultimately lead to? Will emotion be stamped out of our lives entirely, and the race become merely adding machines? Mr. Hamilton carries us into the future to visualize an intermediate era, when emotion is despised but not yet stamped out. His story of that time is not only amusing and interesting, but instructive of the changes that the race must pass through to escape from our emotion-ridden ancestors to a new day when we shall be all intellectual giants.
