Ben Jonson wrote sci-fi too.

Well, sort of.  Ben’s News from the New World, Discovered in the Moon is not a bad masque, as masques go: it’s full of moon-calf monsters and androgynes, and (for those of us who like such things), of self-referential Ben jokes, helpfully explained in the footnotes of the online edition here.

(I’m aware that masques make for odd bedtime reading.)

  1. I’m not sure I can trust this blog. You’ve recently taken to lying about your whereabouts and activities of all things related to Academia and Jonson. Hmm, I guess he could have written such things, but still, how did he find the time to write so much and break Olympic records….such an amazing athlete.
