Rudyard Kipling's thrilling science fiction novella follows the exploits of an intercontinental mail dirigible battling foul weather. Meanwhile, a planet-wide Aerial Board of Control enforces a rigid system of command and control in the skies and in world affairs, too.
In Kipling's 1912 follow-up story, "As Easy as A.B.C.", set 65 years after "With the Night Mail", the Aerial Board has complete control over the social and economic affairs of every nation. When a mob of disgruntled "Serviles" in the District of Northern Illinois demands the return of democracy, the A.B.C. sends a team of troubleshooters and a fleet of 200 zeppelins to "take such steps as might be necessary for the resumption of traffic and all that that implies".
