Editorial Reviews

Review

“Written with astonishing animation and lucidity.” —G. K. Chesterton

About the Author

H.G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'.

China Mieville has won the Arthur C. Clarke and British Fantasy Awards for his science fiction.

Patrick Parrinder has written on H.G. Wells, science fiction, James Joyce and the history of the English novel. Since 1986 he has been Professor of English at the University of Reading.

Steven McLean is Secretary of the H.G. Wells Society. He recently completed his PhD on H.G. Wells at the University of Sheffield.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition Near Illegible
By Mark on November 5, 2017
This review is for the Kindle edition. While it is a steal at $0.99 for the Kindle version, they really are stealing your $1. I don't know how the text was converted to electronic form but somewhere along the way the formatting was completely screwed up (see screenshot). Every other line is capped at one to 3 words and left blank for the remaining line. Trying to read the thing is an exercise in futility. Please fix the Kindle version.
