About the author (2022)

H. G. WELLS (1866-1946) was an English writer of novels, short stories, history, social criticism, and biography. He is thought by many to be the most distinct myth maker of his time. He envisioned such things as time travel, alien invasion, invisibility, biological engineering, and cosmic threats long before they existed or were conceived of by others. In addition to enjoying popular success, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times.
