Georges Méliès, Filmmaker & Magician (1861 -1938)

H.erbert G.eorge Wells had his gripping account of an alien invasion from Mars first published in the waning days of 1897 AD, an amazing 112 years ago:

The book in serialised form appeared in the publication Pearson's Journal and in proper book form shortly in 1898.

It was so popular that unofficial sequels and unauthorised versions were written by others other than Wells.
