The Stairway to the Sun and Dance of the Comets
The Stairway to the Sun and Dance of the Comets compiles two books that were first published by German science fiction writer Paul Scheerbart in 1903. The story includes four fairy tales of sun, sea, animal and storm, each set in their own fantasy location. The moral of Scheerbarts’s magical, yet somber tales explores the idea of treating animals as we would treat ourselves. In short, we must respect each other and not try to harm one another.
