Day 291 : herbert george

Sandy: H.G. Wells was a prolific writer, not just of science fiction but textbooks, rules for war games, social commentary, history and politics. He was considered “The Father of Science Fiction”. Most of his young life he was impoverished. Because of an injury to his leg, he was bedridden and spent much of his time immersed in library books that took him into another world. He worked as an apprentice for different trades to earn money for the family but eventually found being a pupil-teacher more to his liking. The books he wrote with which most are familiar are The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds. Did I mention he was left-handed?

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
