''HIGHER THINGS (1945) is told in the manner H.G. Wells used mostly in the 1920s and 1930s when he wished to sugarcoat harsh lessons about history and the World State, but also owes much to books like Ronald Fraser's The Flying Draper (1924). In Harrisson's version of the mode, a young man finds he can levitate, lifts himself out of the muddle of the UK, and tells Hitler (disguised as the ''Dictator'') a few home truths'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia Of Fantasy).
