Underground Man

by Gabriel Tarde

The sun dies, the world is frozen, and Miltiades comes to the rescue by suggesting a retirement into the interior of the planet, where warmth may be had from the internal fires. This suggestion is carried out, and we have new and wonderful conditions of life in galleries and tunnels--a better and less artificial life, the historian would have us believe. The whole idea is very cleverly sustained, and the author seizes his opportunities to laugh at existing social ideas, yet, at the same time, has many profound thoughts underneath his jests and irony.
