Hugo Gernsback was born in Luxenbourg as Hugo Gernsbacher in August 16, 1884. He is best known today as the Father of Science Fiction, and the person the annual sci-fi writers awards "Hugos" have been named after. But he was many other things as well -- an author, editor, publisher, sexologist, and music composer -- to name a few. You can find his complete biography with a simple Google search.
The Collected Works Of Mohammed Ullyses Fipsby Hugo Gernsback
By this time, most people know that "Mohammed Ullyses Fips" was Hugo Gernsback. What fewer people realize is that Hugo Gernsback was also Mohammed Ullyses Fips! The intriguing thing about all of the Fips inventions was that there was -- through all of them -- an undertone of practicality, and several have indeed seen the ultimate light of day as practical inventions in later years.
Hugo Gernsback was an inventor, an innovator, and a force in his industry. He founded the electronics publishing industry and at one time, was perhaps best known as publisher of science fiction.
The Fips stories presented here are only one facit of this multi-faced individual, and one is at loss for suitable words to pay proper homage to this genius, this giant among men who undoubtedly has left his indelible footprints in the sands of time.
