About the Author
Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) wrote the science fiction classics "The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, "and" The War of the Worlds", and has often been heralded as a father of modern 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
