“Human history in essence is the history of ideas.” – H. G. Wells
“The father of science fiction" (although some argue that it was Jules Verne), Wells was born on this date in 1866. A prolific writer in many genres, including the novel, history, and social commentary, he authored such sci-fi classics as The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The War of the Worlds, which got even more famous after a 1938 radio broadcast by actor Orson Welles.
“What really matters,” he said, “is what you do with what you have.”
