"Fiction means the common things as seen by the uncommon people. Fairy tales mean the uncommon things as seen by the common people." - G. K. Chesterton on Charles Dickens
G. K. Chesterton is most famous for his essays on social problems, economics, politics, and everyday life, but he was also a fascinatingly original storyteller. His book The Man Who Was Thursday is widely considered a science fiction classic. His epic poem on King Alfred, The Ballad of the White Horse, has inspired millions.
