For those who know anything of the most outstanding British authors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the name of Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) needs little introduction, for he wrote on many subjects. He is principally remembered as one of the ‘Fathers of Science Fiction’ and this six volume Leonaur collection focuses upon his writing in that genre—from the strange to the fantastical and scientifically prophetic—with which he will forever be associated. These wonderful and dramatic stories have been gathered together in these attractive, good value volumes in chronological order of original publication.

In ‘The Time Machine’ (1895) an inventor-traveller visits several future destinations including a future populated by the gentle Eloi and brutish Morlocks. ‘The Wonderful Visit’ (1895) features an angel with dazzling plumage who visits Victorian England. In ‘The Island of Doctor Moreau’ (1896) a shipwrecked man finds himself on the island home of a mad scientist who is creating human-like hybrid creatures from animals.
