Ranked among the classic novels of the English language and the inspiration for several unforgettable movies this early work of H G Wells was greeted in by howls of protest from reviewers who found it horrifying and blasphemous They wanted to know more about the wondrous possibilities of science shown in his first book i The Time Machine i not its potential for misuse and terror In i The Island of Dr Moreau i a shipwrecked gentleman named Edward Prendick stranded on a Pacific island lorded over by the notorious Dr Moreau confronts dark secrets strange creatures and a reason to run for his life br br While this riveting tale was intended to be a commentary on evolution divine creation and the tension between human nature and culture modern readers familiar with genetic engineering will marvel at Wells s prediction of the ethical issues raised by producing smarter human beings or bringing back extinct species These levels of interpretation add a richness to Prendick s adventures on Dr Moreau s island of lost souls without distracting from what is still a rip roaring good read, b I ve had a most amazing time b br br So begins the Time Traveller s astonishing firsthand account of his journey years beyond his own era and the story that launched H G Wells s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes and our darkest fears A pull of the Time Machine s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth There he discovers two bizarre races the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks who not only symbolize the duality of human nature but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well Published in this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century Thanks to Wells s expert storytelling and provocative insight b The Time Machine b will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come br br, p Immensely popular during his lifetime b H G Wells b along with Jules Verne is credited with inventing science fiction This new volume collects Wells best loved and most critically acclaimed works In each the author grounds his fantastical imagination in scientific fact and conjecture while lacing his narrative with vibrant action not merely to tell a ripping yarn but to offer a biting critique on the world around him The strength of Mr Wells wrote Arnold Bennett lies in the fact that he is not only a scientist but a most talented student of character especially quaint character He will not only ingeniously describe for you a scientific miracle but he will set down that miracle in the midst of a country village sketching with excellent humor the inn landlady the blacksmith the chemist s apprentice the doctor and all the other persons whom the miracle affects p p p, With H G Wells other novels i The War of the Worlds i was one of the first and greatest works of science fiction ever to be written Even long before man had learned to fly H G Wells wrote this story of the Martian attack on England These unearthly creatures arrive in huge cylinders from which they escape as soon as the metal is cool The first falls near Woking and is regarded as a curiosity rather than a danger until the Martians climb out of it and kill many of the gaping crowd with a Heat Ray These unearthly creatures have heads four feet in diameter and colossal round bodies and by manipulating two terrifying machines the Handling Machine and the Fighting Machine they are as versatile as humans and at the same time insuperable They cause boundless destruction The inhabitants of the Earth are powerless against them and it looks as if the end of the World has come But there is one factor which the Martians in spite of their superior intelligence have not reckoned on It is this which brings about a miraculous conclusion to this famous work of the imagination
