Another significant 19th-century forerunner was Edgar Allan Poe , who wrote many works loosely classifiable as science fiction. The Balloon Hoax of 1844, originally published in the New York Sun , is but one example of Poe’s ability to provide meticulous technical descriptions intended to mislead and impress the gullible.

More significant to the genre’s formation than Poe was Jules Verne , who counted Poe among his influences and was arguably the inventor of science fiction. Verne’s first novel, Paris au XXième siècle ( Paris in the Twentieth Century )—written in 1863 but not published until 1994—is set in the distant 1960s and contains some of his most accurate prognostications: elevated trains, automobiles, facsimile machines, and computer-like banking machines. Nevertheless, the book’s depiction of a dark and bitter dystopian world without art was too radical for Jules Hetzel, Verne’s publisher.

Hetzel, who published a popular-science magazine for young people, the Magasin illustré d’éducation et de récréation , was a shrewder judge of public taste than Verne. With Hetzel’s editorial guidance, Verne abandoned his far-fetched futurism and set to work on the first of his Voyages extraordinaires — Cinq semaines en ballon (1863; Five Weeks in a Balloon ). In this series of contemporary techno-thrillers, the reader learns of balloons, submarines, trains, mechanical elephants, and many other engineering marvels, all described with unmatchable technical accuracy and droll humour.

The word gay by the 1890s had an overall tinge of promiscuity -- a gay house was a brothel. The suggestion of immorality in the word can be traced back at least to the 1630s, if not to Chaucer:

Slang meaning "homosexual" (adj.) begins to appear in psychological writing late 1940s, evidently picked up from gay slang and not always easily distinguished from the older sense:

The association with (male) homosexuality likely got a boost from the term gay cat , used as far back as 1893 in American English for "young hobo," one who is new on the road, also one who sometimes does jobs.
