The Invisible Man Audiobook

The Invisible Man

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Robert Glenister Release Date: July 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by Robert Glenister who is best known, amongst other roles, as 'Three Socks' Morgan in the BBC series Hustle. He is also known for his roles in Spooks and Law and Order. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Christopher Priest, author of The Prestige. Depicting one man's transformation and descent into brutality, H.G. Wells's The Invisible Man is a riveting exploration of science's power to corrupt. This Penguin Classics edition is edited by Patrick Parrinder. With his face swaddled in bandages, his eyes hidden behind dark glasses and his hands covered even indoors, Griffin - the new guest at The Coach and Horses - Is at first assumed to be a shy accident-victim. But the true reason for his disguise is far more chilling: he has developed a process that has made him invisible, and is locked in a struggle to discover the antidote. Forced from the village and driven to murder, he seeks the aid of his old friend Kemp. The horror of his fate has affected his mind, however - and when Kemp refuses to help, Griffin resolves to wreak his revenge. (P) Penguin Audio 2020

The Time Machine Audiobook

The Time Machine

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Mike Jhonson Release Date: June 2020

One of the most renowned works of science fiction, The Time Machine reflects on the adventures of The Time Traveller-a man who constructs a machine which allows him to explore what the future has to offer. As he travels to as far as 802,701 AD, The Time Traveller encounters a world dominated by two types of creatures- beautiful and fragile Eloi and repulsive and brutal Morlocks. His journey then turns quickly from a series of observations into a dangerous quest to return back home, as he realizes that Morlocks have stolen his machine. A dystopian novel that fascinates the readers from the very beginning, The Time Machine both reflects Wells’s sceptical outlook on the future of the Late Victorian England and makes the reader meditate on the future of our civilization.

Short Stories - Volume One Audiobook

Short Stories - Volume One

Herbert George Wells was one of the most prolific and visionary British writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. H. G. Wells, as he is universally known, is now best remembered for his science fiction novels, although he wrote across many genres, including nonfiction. His fiction embraces history, science fiction, horror, satire, fantasy, and social commentary. Wells was also a futurist, foreseeing air travel, tanks (as in “The Land Ironclads”—part of this anthology) space travel, nuclear weapons, and even satellite television. Amongst his writings are dozens of short stories; some are very well known, others less so. When planning this collection, Raconteurs sought stories that we enjoyed ourselves and which embody the range of H. G. Wells’s imagination and talent. This collection of thirteen short stories includes gothic horror, fantasy, ghost stories, science fiction, satire, and stories of domestic and social commentary. It is a collection that we hope will intrigue and entertain you—and leave you wanting to hear more. H. G. Wells’s Short Stories - Volume One is produced by Raconteurs in partnership with Spoken Realms and includes: “The Magic Shop” – read by James Gillies“The Remarkable Case of Davidson’s Eyes” – read by Nigel Patterson“The Door in the Wall” – read by Greg Wagland“The Man Who Could Work Miracles” – read by Malk Williams“The Story of the Late Mr Elvesham” – read by Tim Bruce“The Diamond Maker” – read by Liam Gerrard“Miss Winchelsea’s Heart” – read by Helen Lloyd“A Moonlight Fable” – read by James Gillies“The Red Room” – read by Nigel Patterson“The Star” – read by Greg Wagland“The Land Ironclads” – read by Malk Williams“The Jilting of Jane” – read by Tim Bruce“The Cone” – read by Liam Gerrard

Time Machine, The - H. G. Wells Audiobook

Time Machine, The - H. G. Wells

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Omc Release Date: April 2020

The Time Machine is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative. The work is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle or device to travel purposely and selectively forward or backward through time. The term 'time machine', coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle or device. The Time Machine has been adapted into three feature films of the same name, as well as two television versions and many comic book adaptations. It has also indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media productions.
