🔨 Site under renovation, pardon the mess!

We kick off Season 3 with two giants of 19th-century science fiction: Jules Verne and Albert Robida.  Both French authors, Verne and Robida crafted futuristic novels set in the 20th century, predicting changes in technology and society.  Join me in this trip to the past, which at times feels amazingly reminiscent of the digital world we live in today.

    They're pretty obscure…hopefully they'll find a wider readership, especially the Verne book. 🙂
