Ray Girvan

"in some practicable ways he got a lot of it right--the imagery wasn't there, but the ideas were"

That's the particularly interesting thing. Apart from it being portrayed within the technology and style of the time, so much is spot on: ubiquitous personal vehicles; trouble starting the car; cavalry regiments moving over to mechanised units; rarity of horses; mobile businesses, shops and churches; depletion of resources; air travel; and even what could be interpreted as AI. The only major error is in the personal flight kit.
