Does anyone know the name/author of this futuristic story/novel? (Details)
A few years ago, a friend of mine forwarded a short story/novella written by a well-known writer of the past (as in early 20th century.) I cannot remember if it was H.G. Wells, Huxley, Orwell…it was a well-known writer similar to them (as I recall.) This was not a science-fiction writer per se just someone who had written a novel set in the future. (But I’m not even sure of that entirely.)
Anyway, the thing that stood out for me was that it opened by describing something that was exactly like a laptop and how a laptop functions today even though this was written a long time ago.
I set this story aside and when I got time to read it, I could not find it. So, I am hoping that someone can shed light on this story/author. For some reason, I keep remembering the word “Sunday” and “October”....but I am absolutely not sure of this, I may be thinking of another story altogether when I mention those words.
I would like to tell you what the story is about…but I never finished it…the only thing I remember is how strange it was that in a story written decades ago, someone could have so uncannily described a laptop computer.
Any ideas at all, anyone? I know this is a longshot but thank you soooooooooo much!
