H.G. Wells - Author

About the Author

H.G. Wells was born in Bromley, Kent in 1866. After working as a draper's apprentice and pupil-teacher, he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in 1884, studying under T. H. Huxley. He was awarded a first-class honours degree in biology and resumed teaching but had to retire after a kick from an ill-natured pupil afflicted his kidneys. He worked in poverty in London as a crammer while experimenting in journalism and stories. It was with THE TIME MACHINE (1895) that he had his real breakthrough.

H.G. Wells: The Collection

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man

Author: H.G. Wells Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/09/2018

The Invisible Man stands out as possessing one of the most complicated heroes, or perhaps anti-heroes, inliterature. Griffin is not a naive dreamer such as Moreau's Pendick or a hapless victim of circumstanceslike the unnamed narrator of The War of the Worlds. He is a man of great genius and great faults. Perhapsclosest in character to the time traveler, the invisible man wants to the change the world through hisinvention. Griffin's genius, however, is selfish-no one profits from his experiments, not even himself. Athoroughly unlikeable character defined by impulsiveness, arrogance, rudeness, and, at times, violence,Griffin is a man of the late-nineteenth century-he is a man of the future. The Invisible Man is not only acommentary on the great spirit of invention that elevated the nineteenth century but also a warning againstthe eugenic and self-interested policies that almost destroyed the twentieth century.

Ann Veronica

Ann Veronica

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

According to Wikipedia: "e;Ann Veronica is a novel by H.G. Wellsfirst published in 1909. The book deals with contemporary political issues of the time, concentrating specifically on feminist issues. In the course of the action the heroine matures from an innocent and naive girl to a representative of the New Woman. Wells portrays the attitudes of Edwardian England, in particular those of the heroine's father and boyfriends who are completely unable to understand why a woman should want to be independent, study science, have the right to vote, and so on. These male chauvinists are not portrayed as bad people, but as men blinkered by the education of the time.Ann Veronica created a sensation when published, due both to the feminist sensibilities of the heroine, and to the similarity of her name to that of Amber Reeves, a woman with whom Wells was rumored to be having an affair."e;

'They came in cylinders as dreaded falling stars; they were the ultimate killing machines...' When a Martian spacecraft crash-lands near Woking, mankind is terrorised by aliens in tall, armoured capsules that stalk the countryside on three legs. The frightening machines wreak havoc on London and the Southern Counties with their heat-rays, and survivors are driven underground. Yet it all began in the calm of an observatory... While scanning the heavens, scientist John Nicholson sees a shower of meteorites heading towards Earth. But what he is witnessing is, in fact, the beginnings of an invasion. Soon, dense black smoke wipes out vast numbers of the population and Nicholson tells how he was plunged into a paralysing nightmare of stark terror and utter destruction. Martin Jarvis, Peter Sallis and Anthony Jackson also feature in this thrilling six-part, full-cast dramatisation of H.G. Well's classic novel - an immensely atmospheric recording based on one of the most influential stories ever told.
