English Sci-fi author in 1955 - hmmm

 

Arthur C. Clarke I think may have had his first stories published around then, although I think most of his writing was a bit later. So not him.

 

H.G. Wells ... but he was before then. 

 

Brian Aldiss - also I think a bit later. 

 

And you are currently reading John Wyndham ... so is it a stretch to suggest him - he is really the only British author I can think of who would be publishing around that time?

I missed this one on Jeopardy tonight :doh:

Final Jeopardy (none of the people got it either)

Category: 20th Century Novel Quotes

Question:  "It was one of those pictures... so contrived that the eyes follow you...beneath."  (The picture was this 5 word quote.)

 

Anyone guess?

I wanted to go with The Da Vinci -code but I'm pretty sure that's not it, and I think it was published in the 21st century, too :giggle2: 

 

What was Chrissy's quote, as well?

Good guess, but mine is mid 20th Century.  :smile: Here is a clue- it's SF and another genre (that would give it away).

Mine was from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.

 

Your one Anna is truly bugging me. I know I have read that, but for the life of me I cannot place it. '...and another genre.....' ? I am now both stumped and intrigued. :D  

Let me go wrack (or perhaps whack) my brain. :banghead:
