This year I participated with my entry celebrating Leo Tolstoy's lesser known first draft of what became his Russian literary masterpiece. In an effort to break into Hollywood script writing about 70 years too early, Tolstoy had written an epic about mutated killer 50' pea pods unleashed on Napoleon's invasion of 1812 : War and Peas!
Fortunately, he listened to advice and scrapped the idea as too silly and wrote the classic we know today.
My entry illustrates this previously little known historical sci-fi narrative, which could rival the likes of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds if more people become aware of its significance.
