“A Problem in Communication,” Miles J. Breuer, 1930

“A Problem in Communication,” Miles J. Breuer, 1930 – Two friends who grew up playing “communication” games together (ciphers, puzzles, telephone, etc.) must communicate secretly while under the watchful eye of the leader of the Science Community cult.  The cult intends to spread its “Science is God” religion by manufacturing catastrophes so that city infrastructures can be destroyed and replaced by the cult’s organizational model.

Comments: Michael Page notes that the cult portrayed parallels many of the science-based cults to come, including Scientology.

Author: Wikipedia: “Miles John Breuer (January 3, 1889 – October 14, 1945) was an American physician and science fiction writer.”
