Authors In Fiction
In Lewis' The Great Divorce, the author is guided through the foothills of Heaven by George MacDonald.
In Lewis' The Hideous Strength, Horace Jules, novelist and Director of the National Institute of Co-ordinated Experiments, is an uncharitable parody of HG Wells.
In Poul Anderson's There Will Be Time, a mutant time traveller gives the time travel idea to an English writer - HG Wells.
Also in There Will Be Time, another mutant time traveller gives the ideas of the Maurai Federation and of mutant time travelling to one Robert Anderson who passes them on to - Poul Anderson.
A neat relay race through four works of imaginative fiction.
