About the Author
H. G. Wells (1866 1946) was a novelist, journalist, sociologist, and historian whose novels "The Time Machine", "The Island of Dr. Moreau", and "The Invisible Man" are among the classic works of science fiction.
“[Wells] contrives to give over humanity into the clutches of the Impossible and yet manages to keep it down (or up) to its humanity, to its flesh, blood, sorrow, folly.” —Joseph Conrad
