    About "H.G. Wells"

    1. H.G. Wells

      In 1866, Herbert George H.G Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper s apprentice as a teenager The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an usher, or student teacher Wells earned a government scholarship in 1884, to study biology under Thomas Henry Huxley at the Normal School of Science Wells earned his bachelor of science and doctor of science degrees at the University of London After marrying his cousin, Isabel, Wells began to supplement his teaching salary with short stories and freelance articles, then books, including The Time Machine 1895 , The Island of Dr Moreau 1896 , The Invisible Man 1897 , and The War of the Worlds 1898.Wells created a mild scandal when he divorced his cousin to marry one of his best students, Amy Catherine Robbins Although his second marriage was lasting and produced two sons, Wells was an unabashed advocate of free as opposed to indiscriminate love He continued to openly have extra marital liaisons, most famously with Margaret Sanger, and a ten year relationship with the author Rebecca West, who had one of his two out of wedlock children A one time member of the Fabian Society, Wells sought active change His 100 books included many novels, as well as nonfiction, such as A Modern Utopia 1905 , The Outline of History 1920 , A Short History of the World 1922 , The Shape of Things to Come 1933 , and The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind 1932 One of his booklets was Crux Ansata, An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church Although Wells toyed briefly with the idea of a divine will in his book, God the Invisible King 1917 , it was a temporary aberration Wells used his international fame to promote his favorite causes, including the prevention of war, and was received by government officials around the world He is best remembered as an early writer of science fiction and futurism.He was also an outspoken socialist Wells and Jules Verne are each sometimes referred to as The Fathers of Science Fiction D 1946.More philosopedia indexp H._ine literature wellhgwellsusa.50megs britannica EBchecked tenpedia wiki H._G._Wells

    1. H.G. Wells. What is there to say? Adulterer, plagiarist, one of the fathers of science fiction, father of wargaming, and a brilliant author.This collects six of his stories. I'd read The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds before, but the other three were new to me. They were, as with the rest of his stories, very, very good. Somewhat dated, but no less fun to read.I'd recommend this for anybody who likes science fiction. These books are classics, and for a very good reaso [...]


    2. H. G. Wells weaves science fiction that is always thought-provoking, often delightful, and occasionally disturbing or ridiculous. In many places Wells uses his stories to promote a socialist agenda. This is most clear in "The First Men in the Moon," and less clear (or perhaps more subtle) in his other stories. The stories in this collection, ranked from my favorite to my least favorite, would be as follows: 1) The War of the Worlds2) The Time Machine3) The Invisible Man4) The First Men in the Mo [...]


    3. An interesting idea for a book. Herakleophorbia a new kind of food given to things that still are in the growing process, that let the object grow constantly rather than in spurts. In human letting the grow to be 40 ft tall. Its got to be one of the most unique books i've read. A more thoughtout BFG.



    4. This set was how I was introduced to H.G. Wells. I believe my parents bought it in a discount bin, or something of that matter. These are by far his greatest works! All are a must read!
