    Not only is science fiction an idea of tremendous import, but it is to be
    an important factor in making the world a better place to live in, through
    educating the public to the possibilities of science and the influence of sci​
    ence on life which, even today, are not appreciated by the man on the street.
    If every man, woman, boy and girl, could be induced to read science
    fiction right along, there would certainly be a great resulting benefit to the
    community, in that the educational standards of its people would be raised
    tremendously. Science fiction would make people happier, give them a
    broader understanding of the world, make them more tolerant.

    —Hugo Gernsback, ‘‘Science FictionWeek’’ (1930)
