The Man Who Invented Fantasy
Lester del Rey wore 1950s-style horn-rimmed glasses, an untamed billy-goat beard, and his silver hair neatly brushed back above a prominent forehead. Notably, he would generously distribute cards bearing the inscription: Lester del Rey, Expert. On occasion, he would humorously claim that his full name was Ramón Felipe San Juan Mario Silvio Enrico Smith Heathcourt-Brace Sierra y Alvarez-del Rey y de los Verdes. However, it is important to note that he was actually born Leonard Knapp, the son of Wright Knapp, in 1915 in the rural southeastern region of Minnesota. Like many notable figures from the state, such as Jay Gatz, Prince Rogers Nelson, and Robert Zimmerman, del Rey was captivated by the idea of reinventing oneself. In 1977, at the age of sixty, del Rey harnessed his inclination for imaginative storytelling to great success, effectively revolutionizing the genre of fantasy fiction as we know it today.
Close race in Slovakia election as vote counting continues
In the early stages of vote counting on Sunday, the populist SMER-SSD party, led by former Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico, emerged as the frontrunner, despite exit polls indicating that the liberal Progressive Slovakia party was in the lead. As of the latest update, with 90.15% of votes counted, SMER-SSD holds the top position with 23.69% of the partial votes, while Progressive Slovakia is currently in second place with 15.68%. Two earlier exit polls had predicted a narrow victory for Progressive Slovakia, which would require the support of smaller parties to form a government in the 150-seat parliament. The center-left Hlas (Voice) party, led by former Smer-SD member and Prime Minister from 2018-2020 Peter Pellegrini, is a close third with 15.43% of the votes. Hlas may play a pivotal role in the formation of a coalition government. Prior to the election, Pellegrini did not express a preference for either of the larger parties, but noted that his party was more aligned with Fico's SMER-SSD.
