This Week’s Quote …

‘No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else’s draft.’

— H.G. Wells

H. G. Wells was a prolific English author who was born 21 September 1866 and passed away 13 August 1946. His writing covered many genres, and he wrote more than fifty novels and dozens of short stories. H. G. Wells’ non-fiction works included social commentary, politics, history, popular science, satire, biography and autobiography. He is now remembered for his science fiction novels, such as The Time Machine and The Island of Doctor Moreau. H. G. Wells has been called the ‘father of science fiction’. I have to admit I’ve just finished watching the first season of the TV show Time After Time, whose main character is loosely based on Mr. Wells and his time machine, and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next season.
