Verne became one of the most devoted admirers of the American author, and wrote his first science fiction tale, 'An voyage in Balloon' (1851), under the influence of Poe. Later Verne would write a sequel to Poe's unfinished novel, Narrative of a Gordon Pym, entitled The Sphinz of the Ice-Fileds (1897).

October Sky Movie/Book Comparison Report October Sky is a collection of the set of memoirs of author Homer Hickam Jr. The book was originally called “Rocket Boys” because Homer and his friends were dubbed the name when they were building and launching rockets.

Meade Dear, Meade To Whom It May Concern, I was ecstatic with your products that I was unable to resist sending a letter to explain my recognition of your ads.
