No one reads Dr. Bacteria, pseudonym of Spanish neurobiologist and Nobel Prize winner Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934).

From an article by Laura Otis, translator of Cajal’s Vacation Stories:

Few scientists who admire neurobiologist Santiago Ramón y Cajal’s extraordinary drawings of neurons know that early in his career, he wrote science fiction. Cajal’s Vacation Stories, written in 1885–86 and published in 1905, explore the ethical consequences of what was then cutting-edge science: bacteriology, artificial insemination, photography, and the power of suggestion. Those who have read Cajal’s Recollections of My Life and Advice for a Young Investigator know how vividly he recreates the lab atmosphere for readers, but his short stories have a creative vision and wicked humor that even these classics lack. In his first years as a scientist, Cajal used fiction to take a “vacation” from the rules of scientific writing so that he could consider the future of science. [cont. reading]

The above drawing by Ramón y Cajal is “one of the first drawings of a neuron.” Via.
