H G Wells - Author

About the Author

Herbert George Wells was born in 1866 in Bromley, Kent. His career as an author was fostered by an unfortunate accident as a child. He broke his leg and spent the mandatory rest period reading every book which he could find. Wells was awarded a scholarship and furthered his education at the Normal School of Science in London. It was at the Normal School that Wells came under the wing of the famous biologist Thomas H. Huxley. Wells' "science fiction" (although he never called it such)was clearly influenced by his studies at the Normal School and his interest in biology.

H.G. Wells gained fame with his first major fiction work: The Time Machine in 1895. Soon after the publication of this book, Wells followed with The Island of Dr. Moreau (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and perhaps his most famous popular work: The War of the Worlds (1898).

Over the years Wells became concerned with the fate of human society in a world where technology and scientific study were advancing at a rapid pace. For a period he was a member of The Fabian Society, a group of social philosophers in London. Wells's later works became less science fiction and more social critique.

The accuracy of the "science" in Wells's work has often been called into question. It is rumored that Wells and the French novelist Jules Verne actually criticized each other's writing. Wells's claim was that "Verne couldn't write himself out of a paper sack" and Verne accused Wells of having "scientifically implausible ideas." The science may not be accurate, but the adventure and philosophy in those books makes Wells' early science fiction fun and fascinating to read.

The eight stories here show Wells in various moods and foreshadow his celebrity. These are uncanny tales, resonating strangely, despite arising from ordinary thoughts, interactions, and memories. Wells shows just how fantastic the everyday can be, if one only pauses to reflect on missed chances, suggestions of what might have been, bleak premonitions of blessed futures whose utopian promise is destroyed by new forms of war.

The Island of Doctor Moreau

The Island of Doctor Moreau

Author: H. G. Wells Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/03/2019

A classic of science fiction and a dark meditation on Darwinian thought in the late Victorian period, The Island of Doctor Moreau explores the possibility of civilisation as a constraint imposed on savage human nature. The protagonist, Edward Prendick, finds himself stranded on an island with the notorious Doctor Moreau, whose experiments on the island's humans and animals result in unspeakable horrors.The critical introduction to this Broadview Edition gives particular emphasis to Wells's hostility towards religion as well as his thorough knowledge of the Darwinian thought of his time. Appendices provide passages from Darwin and Huxley related to Wells's early writing; in addition, excerpts from other writers illustrate late-nineteenth-century anxieties about social degeneration.

Ann Veronica

Author: H. G. Wells Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/03/2019

H.G. Wells's 1909 novel centres on the coming of age of the spirited Ann Veronica, who runs away from her sheltered suburban home to live in London. There she mingles with feminists, studies biology, learns jiu jitsu, and even participates in a suffragette raid on the House of Commons that lands her in jail. When originally published, the novel was deemed poisonous for its bold treatment of an adulterous romance that only lightly veiled Wells's extramarital affairs. While critics debate whether the shift to romance undermines the novel's feminist themes, readers continue to be engaged by its vividly realized heroine and its rich portrayal of the tumultuous social movements of Edwardian London.Historical documents expand on the novel's autobiographical dimension with letters between Wells and Amber Reeves, the model for Ann Veronica; also included are materials on the suffrage movement, attempts to censor the novel, and the New Woman.

Man moge es mir verzeihen, wenn ich einiges uber sie sage, ehe ich meine eigene Geschichte beginne.

Es hat allezeit Blettsworthys in England gegeben, und zwar im Sden und im Westen des Landes, und sie sind stets so ziemlich dieselbe Art von Menschen gewesen. Zahlreiche Grabschriften und hnliche Aufzeichnungen, die weit hinter die Zeit der Tudors zurckreichen, legen Zeugnis fr ihre Tugenden ab, fr ihr Wohlwollen, ihre Rechtschaffenheit und ihren unaufdringlichen Reichtum. Es soll auch im Languedoc einen Zweig der Familie geben, doch wei ich darber nichts Bestimmtes. Einige Blettsworthys sind nach Amerika, insbesondere nach Virginia ausgewandert, scheinen aber dort verschluckt worden zu sein und sind verlorengegangen.

Einige Zeit hindurch war Mr. Parham dem Gedanken, einer spiritistischen Sitzung beizuwohnen, wozu Sir Bussy Woodcock ihn aufgefordert hatte, in starkstem Mae abgeneigt. Mr. Parham wollte mit Spiritismus nichts zu schaffen haben. Gleichzeitig aber wollte er seine Beziehungen zu Sir Bussy Woodcock nicht lockern. Sir Bussy Woodcock war einer jener ungebildeten Plutokraten, deren Umgang Mnner von berragender Intelligenz heutzutage pflegen mssen, wenn sie nur den geringsten Ehrgeiz in sich verspren, beim Schauspiel des Lebens mehr zu sein als bloe Zuschauer. Reiche Abenteuer solcher Art sind unter den heutigen Bedingungen die notwendigen Vermittler zwischen edlem Denken und gemeiner Wirklichkeit. Die Notwendigkeit einer so schwierigen und dabei so entwrdigenden Vermittlung ist bedauerlich, doch scheint sie in dieser unerklrlichen Welt nun einmal zu bestehen. Der Denker und der Mann der Tat sind einander ntig - zumindest scheint der Denker ihres Zusammenwirkens zu bedrfen. Sowohl Plato wie auch Konfuzius oder Machiavelli muten sich einen Frsten suchen. Heutzutage, da Frsten auf schwachen Beinen stehen, mssen Denker sich an reiche Leute halten. Es ist schwer, reiche Leute zu finden, die fr geistige Bestrebungen etwas brig haben, und hat man sie gefunden, so sind sie zumeist recht strrisch. An Sir Bussy zum Beispiel gab es so manches, was ein Mensch von hoher Geistigkeit kaum ertragen htte, wenn ihm nicht die wunderbarste Selbstbeherrschung eigen gewesen wre. Sir Bussy war ein kleiner Mann mit rotem, sommersprossigem Gesicht, einer hochgestlpten Nase, wie man sie heute so hufig findet, und einem Mund, der einer aufs Geratewohl ins Gesicht gesetzten Schmarre glich; er war untersetzt, was einen Menschen von hohem, schlankem Wuchs an und fr sich schon unangenehm berhren mu, und er bewegte sich mit einer Lebhaftigkeit und Hast, die einem oft auf die Nerven fiel und jederzeit bewies, da Sir Bussy gewisse, einem kultivierten Geiste unerlliche

The War of the Worlds (1898), by H. G. Wells, is an early science fiction novel which describes an invasion of England by aliens from Mars. It is one of the earliest and best-known depictions of an alien invasion of Earth, and has influenced many others, as well as spawning several films, radio dramas, comic book adaptations, and a television series based on the story. The 1938 radio broadcast caused public outcry against the episode, as many listeners believed that an actual Martian invasion was in progress, a notable example of mass hysteria.

"e;The Invisible Man"e; is the most famous novel by the famous English writer Herbert Wells. It describes the fate of the scientist-physicist Griffin, who invented a machine that makes a person invisible. But for all the sensationalism of the discovery, it concealed in itself and a lot of pretty uncomfortable situations. In these situations, the hero of the work always finds himself. The tragic story of a talented scientist who imagines himself a "e;superman"e; is distinguished by a tense, almost detective story and strikes a combination of psychological and everyday authenticity with the fantasy of the events taking place.

After the Lady Vain is shipwrecked, Edward Prendick is plucked from the waves by a passing ship and deposited on a remote island. Here he is the guest of Dr Moreau, whose notorious scientific methods had caused an uproar that left him with no choice but to flee London. Disquieted and appalled by the pained cries of suffering animals, Edward soon realizes that the Doctor is continuing and developing his depraved experiments, and that he too is in great danger. Shocking and suffused with contemporary fears regarding the morality of the latest advances in science and their possible implications for religion, The Island of Dr Moreau is both a ruthless social satire and an exploration of human nature.

Hailed as the founder of modern science fiction, H. G. Wells (1866–1946) wrote a brilliant succession of novels and short stories that remain in the first rank of the genre. In fantasies made credible by their simple realism, his enduringly relevant tales gave symbolic expression to the ideas and anxieties of his era.This collection contains the best of H. G. Wells's science-fiction short stories: favorites like "e;The Crystal Egg,"e; "e;Aepyornis Island,"e; "e;The Strange Orchid,"e; "e;The Man Who Could Work Miracles,"e; "e;A Dream of Armageddon,"e; "e;The Sea Raiders,"e; and other tales about fourth-dimensional adventure, biological monstrosities, marvelous inventions, time distortions, cosmic catastrophe, and other intriguing events. In addition to these 17 short stories, this anthology features the novel The Invisible Man in its entirety. One of Wells's most popular stories, it offers both a serious study of egotism as well as a first-rate science-fiction thriller.

Food of the Gods

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 15/05/2018

What happens when science tampers with nature? A riveting, cautionary tale with disastrous results reveals the chilling answer. Hoping to create a new growth agent for food with beneficial uses to mankind, two scientists find that the spread of the material is uncontrollable. Giant chickens, rats, and insects run amok, and children given the food stuffs experience incredible growth--and serious illnesses. Over the years, people who have eaten these specially treated foods find themselves unable to fit into a society where ignorance and hypocrisy rule. These "e;giants,"e; with their extraordinary mental powers, find themselves shut away from an older, more traditional society. Intolerance and hatred increase as the line of distinction between ordinary people and giants is drawn across communities and families. One of H. G. Wells' lesser-known works, The Food of the Gods has been retold many times in many forms since it was first published in 1904. The gripping, newly relevant tale combines fast-paced entertainment with social commentary as it considers the ethics involved in genetic engineering.

War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

According to Wikipedia, "e;The War of the Worlds (1898) is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. It describes the experiences of an unnamed narrator who travels through the suburbs of London as the Earth is invaded by Martians. It is one of the earliest stories that details a conflict between mankind and an alien race. The War of the Worlds is split into two parts, Book one: The Coming of the Martians, and Book two: The Earth under the Martians. The novel is narrated by a writer of philosophical articles who throughout the narrative struggles to reunite with his wife, while witnessing the Martians rampaging through the southern English counties. Part one also features the tale of his brother, who accompanies two women to the coast in the hope of escaping England as it is invaded. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian fears and prejudices. At the time of publication it was classed as a scientific romance, like his earlier novel The Time Machine. Since then, it has influenced much literature and other media, spawning several films, radio dramas, comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It also influenced the real-life work of scientists, notably the rocket scientist Robert H. Goddard who developed practical techniques for interplanetary travel.

Basically, Wells' idea of a perfect world would be if everyone were able to live a happy life. * This book is written with an intimate knowledge of former ideal commonwealths and is a conscious attempt to describe a utopia that is not utopian (Review- by C.M.H.). * June Deery refers to A Modern Utopia as a work in progress for two obvious reasons: (1) it is about social and technological advance and (2) Wells stresses that he is describing a dynamic Utopia (Deery).

Wheels of Chance

Wheels of Chance

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 01/03/2018

Classic novel, first published in 1896. According to Wikipedia: "e;The Wheels of Chance is an early comic novel by H. G. Wells about a cycle holiday, somewhat in the style of Three Men in a Boat. This novel was written at the height of the cycling craze (1890-1905) when practical, comfortable bicycles first became widely and cheaply available, and before the rise of the automobile (see History of the bicycle). The advent of the bicycle stirred sudden and profound changes in the social life of England. Even the working class could travel substantial distances, quickly and cheaply, and the very idea of travelling for pleasure became a possibility for thousands of people for the first time. This new freedom affected many. It began to weaken the rigid English class structure and it gave an especially powerful boost to the existing movement toward female emancipation. These are the social changes Wells explores in this story. His hero, Mr. Hoopdriver, is a draper's assistant in Putney, a badly-paid, grinding position on the bottom fringes of the middle class (and one which Wells briefly held); and yet he owns a bicycle and is just setting out on a bicycling tour for his annual ten days holiday."e; "e;Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 - 13 August 1946) was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre.

The main character awakes to see his dreams realized, and the future revealed to him in all its horrors and malformities. The novel was originally published as When the Sleeper Wakes in 1899. Dissatisfied with its original form, Wells, who was an outspoken socialist and author of prophetic writings, rewrote it in 1910. "e;Like most of my earlier work"e;, he wrote in the 1910 edition's preface, "e;it was written under considerable pressure; there are marks of haste not only in the writing of the latter part, but in the very construction of the story"e;.

When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year 802,701 AD, he is initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty, contentment and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species descended from man, he soon realises that this beautiful people are simply remnants of a once-great culture - now weak and childishly afraid of the dark. They have every reason to be afraid: in deep tunnels beneath their paradise lurks another race descended from humanity - the sinister Morlocks. And when the scientist's time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these tunnels, if he is ever to return to his own era.

Although best known for his scientific romances that paved the way for the modern science fiction genre, H. G. Wells (1866-1946) produced significant works on politics, society, science and history. Fascinated as much with the real world as his imaginary one, and displeased with the quality of history textbooks at the end of World War I, Wells took on the task of writing his own book of world history. In 1919 he published "e;The Outline of History,"e; a 1,324-page book in three volumes, which he soon followed with the much shorter and highly popular work, "e;A Short History of the World."e; This condensed work is a monumental account of the physical, spiritual, and intellectual evolution of the human race, and chronicles key events of humanity's development. More importantly, Wells brings to light the continuity of history, and provokes thoughts on the future implications of our scientific and intellectual progress.

Journeys Through Time & Space

Journeys Through Time & Space

A Nebula Award winner presents tales that shaped modern science fiction and fantasyfive complete novels by Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, and more. In this handpicked collection, New York Timesbestselling author Greg Bear travels back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when novelists let their imaginations soar beyond conventional boundaries of time and space and contributed to the emergence of imaginative new literary genres. In 1889, Mark Twain introduced Americans to time travel in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, in which a hard-headed New Englander is sent back through history to the age of chivalry. Six years later, H. G. Wells propelled an intrepid inventor into the far future via The Time Machine; there, our fearless hero discovers a nightmarish evolutionary scenario in which technologically advanced but mutated Morlocks dwell underground, preying on the innocent aboveground Eloi. In 1912, long before Ray Bradbury or Star Wars, Edgar Rice Burroughs imagined the first wildly popular alternative fantasy/alien culture with A Princess of Mars, transporting readers from Arizona to the red planet, where Confederate soldier John Carter is swept up in another kind of civil war and seduced by a gorgeous red-hued princess. In 1920, Scottish novelist David Lindsay presented A Voyage to Arcturus, an interstellar quest for truth as well as an inquiry into the nature of good and evil that inspired generations of fantasy writers to come. And in 1922, E. R. Eddison turned the planet Mercury into a fantasy version of Earth where demons and witches wage war on a Homeric scale in The Worm Ouroboros. With an insightful introduction, Bear celebrates the writers who first swept readers away to other times and worldsand blew their minds in ways that altered our literary landscape and collective imagination forever.

War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 07/06/2017

War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells first serialised in 1897 in the UK by Pearson's Magazine and in the US by Cosmopolitan magazine. The novel's first appearance in hardcover was in 1898 from publisher William Heinemann of London. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. The novel is the first-person narrative of both an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and of his younger brother in London as southern England is invaded by Martians. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears and prejudices. At the time of publication, it was classified as a scientific romance, like Wells's earlier novel The Time Machine. The War of the Worlds has been both popular (having never been out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It has even influenced the work of scientists, notably Robert Goddard, who (inspired by the book) invented both the liquid fuelled rocket and multistage rocket, which resulted in the Apollo 11 moon landing 71 years later.

World Set Free

World Set Free

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 03/06/2017

The World Set Free is a novel written in 1913 and published in 1914 by H. G. Wells. The book is based on a prediction of nuclear weapons of a more destructive and uncontrollable sort than the world has yet seen. It had appeared first in serialised form with a different ending as A Prophetic Trilogy, consisting of three books: A Trap to Catch the Sun, The Last War in the World and The World Set Free. A frequent theme of Wells's work, as in his 1901 nonfiction book Anticipations, was the history of humans' mastery of power and energy through technological advance, seen as a determinant of human progress. The novel begins: "e;The history of mankind is the history of the attainment of external power. Man is the tool-using, fire-making animal. . . . Always down a lengthening record, save for a set-back ever and again, he is doing more."e; (Many of the ideas Wells develops here found a fuller development when he wrote The Outline of History in 1918-1919.) The novel is dedicated "e;To Frederick Soddy's Interpretation of Radium,"e; a volume published in 1909. Scientists of the time were well aware that the slow natural radioactive decay of elements like radium continues for thousands of years, and that while the rate of energy release is negligible, the total amount released is huge. Wells used this as the basis for his story.

The Time Traveller (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully free of the trammels of precision. And he put it to us in this way-marking the points with a lean forefinger-as we sat and lazily admired his earnestness over this new paradox (as we thought it) and his fecundity. 'You must follow me carefully. I shall have to controvert one or two ideas that are almost universally accepted. The geometry, for instance, they taught you at school is founded on a misconception.' 'Is not that rather a large thing to expect us to begin upon?'

The Sleeper Awakes is a dystopian science fiction novel by H. G. Wells about a man who sleeps for two hundred and three years, waking up in a completely transformed London, where, because of compound interest on his bank accounts, he has become the richest man in the world. The main character awakes to see his dreams realised, and the future revealed to him in all its horrors and malformities. The novel is a rewritten version of When the Sleeper Wakes, a story by Wells that was serialised between 1898 and 1899. Graham, an Englishman living in London in 1897 takes drugs to cure insomnia and falls into a coma. He wakes up in 2100. He later learns that he has inherited huge wealth and that his money has been put into a trust. Over the years, the trustees, the "e;White Council"e;, have used his wealth to establish a vast political and economic world order. When he wakes Graham is disoriented. The people around him had not expected him to wake up, and are alarmed. Word spreads that the "e;Sleeper"e; has awakened. A mob gathers around the building and demands to see the fabled Sleeper. The people around Graham will not answer his questions. They place Graham under house arrest. Graham learns that he is the legal owner and master of most of the world. Rebels led by Ostrog help Graham to escape. They say that the people need Graham's leadership to rise against the White Council. Unconvinced, but unwilling to remain a prisoner, Graham goes with them. Graham arrives at a massive hall where the workers have gathered to prepare for the revolution. They march against the White Council but are soon attacked by the state police. In the confusion, Graham is separated from the revolutionaries. He meets an old man who tells him the story of the Sleeper - the White Council invested his wealth to buy the industries and political entities of half the world, establishing a plutocracy and sweeping away parliament and the monarchy. The Sleeper is just a figurehead.

Time Machine

Time Machine

Author: H. G. Wells Format: eBook Release Date: 19/05/2017

The Time Machine is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and written as a frame narrative. Wells is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel by using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposely and selectively forwards or backwards in time. The term "e;time machine"e;, coined by Wells, is now almost universally used to refer to such a vehicle. The Time Machine has been adapted into three feature films of the same name, as well as two television versions, and a large number of comic book adaptations. It has also indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media productions. Wells had considered the notion of time travel before, in a short story titled "e;The Chronic Argonauts"e; (1888). This work, published in his college newspaper, was the foundation for The Time Machine. Wells frequently stated that he had thought of using some of this material in a series of articles in the Pall Mall Gazette until the publisher asked him if he could instead write a serial novel on the same theme. Wells readily agreed and was paid GBP100 (equal to about GBP10,000 today) on its publication by Heinemann in 1895, which first published the story in serial form in the January to May numbers of The New Review (newly under the nominal editorship of W. E. Henley). Henry Holt and Company published the first book edition (possibly prepared from a different manuscript) on 7 May 1895; Heinemann published an English edition on 29 May. These two editions are different textually and are commonly referred to as the "e;Holt text"e; and "e;Heinemann text"e;, respectively. Nearly all modern reprints reproduce the Heinemann text. The story reflects Wells's own socialist political views, his view on life and abundance, and the contemporary angst about industrial relations. It is also influenced by Ray Lankester's theories about social degeneration and shares many elements with Edward Bulwer-Lytton's novel Vril, the Power of the Coming Race (1871).
