Summary (IBList user synopsis):

The Aerial Board of Control, or the Post Office, rules the world. Traffic must get through at all costs, through rain, sleet or snow. In huge airships, the mail is delivered around the world.

This story was extremely popular when first written, in an era when airships and airplanes vied for future control of the skies. It even spawned a sequel, "As Easy as A.B.C." written in 1912.
