Boon: The Mind of the Race, The Wild Asses of the Devil, and The Last Trump
George H. Doran Company, 1915 - English fiction - 335 pages
A satire that purports to be about a scholar, Reginald Bliss, who is pulling together the literary remains of a recently deceased author (modeled on Henry James, a friend of Wells'), although Wells makes some jibes at his own expense and reputation, too.
