Timeless Adventures from the Father of Science Fiction

by H. G. Wells



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A superb collection of the most famous works by H.G. Wells, the father of science fiction.

Few can claim a literary legacy to match that of H.G. Wells, who conjured fantastic tales that continue to stir both wonder and terror in readers after more than a century. His messages remain strikingly relevant today, with cutting social critiques and almost visionary portrayals of the future. This collection contains Wells’s most notable science fiction works, including his four most popular novels:  the eerily prescient The Time Machine; The War of the Worlds, with its paranoia of an alien invasion; The Invisible Man; and The Island of Dr. Moreau. In addition, the book includes ten of his very best short stories, making this an essential addition to every sci-fi fan’s library.

Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was an English writer, acknowledged as the “father of science fiction.” He foresaw the advent of airplanes, tanks, space travel, and nuclear weapons, and wrote of time travel, alien invasion, invisibility, and biological engineering.
