Virginia Woolf's Secret Career as a Pulp Fiction Novelist, Or, How She Inspired "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" (Via

I know what you're thinking. You're like, "Abby, stop pulling my leg!"  but I'm being completely serious here. While browsing through today, I came across this article:

Oddly enough, before Woolf became famous for Mrs. Dalloway, she was penning Jonathan Swift fan fiction under the pseudonym, "EV Odle", and earning good money for it! Her science fiction stories include, The Puppeteer God, a work that inspired the Wachowski Brothers to create "The Matrix".

Her 1925 book, The Unwanted Guest would later prove to be the inspiration for 1958's cult classic, "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman". Woolf is also responsible for the first cyborg fiction novel.

Woman, you are full of surprises!
