When H.G. Wells met Orson Welles, Or: How typos lead to neat things
The strangest part of this story may be that in the middle of World War II, 74-year-old British author H.G. Wells took a train to Texas to speak to a meeting of the United States Brewers Assn. I can't quite figure out why he was tapped to speak there; perhaps he simply liked beer.
