Paradise and Iron, Miles J. Breuer, 1930

Paradise and Iron, Miles J. Breuer, 1930(novel) An artistic utopia seems to have been achieved with the help of machines.

Comments: Suggested by Paul Carter to be an allegory about the effect of machines on human creativity.  Brian Stableford calls it an early example of “mechanization-anxiety,” a “major theme of science fiction, most notably in Williamson’s The Humanoids and Philip K. Dick’s “Autofac” and “Second Variety” (Michael Page, The Man With the Strange Head)

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