Item Description...
Overview
The Time Machine, Wells' first novel (published in 1895) and The War Of The Worlds (1898), comprise two great firsts in the history of science fiction. Respectively, they were the first novels to center around time travel and the first to suggest intelligent extraterrestrial life and interplanetary invasion. The Time Machine When the Time Traveler boldly steeped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the far future and in an almost unrecognizable world. In another, more utopian age, creatures seemed to live together free of strife and competition. The Time Traveler thought he could learn the secrets of these happy beings and take the lessons of life to his own time - until he discovered that his marvelous invention, his only means of escape, had been stolen. The War of the Worlds "No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own. . ." So begins The War of the Worlds, the novel that made Wells famous and has enthralled and terrified for almost 100 years. Ten huge and tireless creatures land in England and, using their deadly rays and crushing strength, threaten the very existence of humankind. Well's classic is not just groundbreaking science fiction, it is a shocking social parable about man's inhumanity to man.

More About multivoice H.G. Wells

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Herbert George Wells was born in Bromley, Kent, England, on September 21, 1866. His father was a professional cricketer and sometime shopkeeper, his mother a former lady's maid. Although "Bertie" left school at fourteen to become a draper's apprentice (a life he detested), he later won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in London, where he studied with the famous Thomas Henry Huxley. He began to sell articles and short stories regularly in 1893. In 1895, his immediately successful novel The Time Machine rescued him from a life of penury on a schoolteacher's salary. His other "scientific romances"--The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), The First Men in the Moon (1901), and The War in the Air (1908)--won him distinction as the father of science fiction. Henry James saw in Wells the most gifted writer of the age, but Wells, having coined the phrase "the war that will end war" to describe World War I, became increasingly disillusioned and focused his attention on educating mankind with his bestselling Outline of History (1920) and his later utopian works. Living until 1946, Wells witnessed a world more terrible than any of his imaginative visions, and he bitterly observed: "Reality has taken a leaf from my book and set itself to supercede me."

Greg Bear's novels and stories have appeared in more than twenty languages worldwide and have won numerous prizes, including two Hugos, five Nebulas, and the Prix Apollo. His novels include Darwin's Radio (winner of the Nebula and Endeavor awards), Darwin's Children, Vitals, Blood Music, Eon, Queen of Angels, and Moving Mars. He has served as a consultant and a lecturer on space and defense policy, biotechnology and bioterrorism, multimedia entertainment, and Internet issues.

Simon J. James is Professor of Victorian Literature at the Department of English Studies, Durham University. He is the editor of The Wellsian, the peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the H.G. Wells Society. He has edited four H.G. Wells novels for the Penguin Classics, as well as George Gissing's Charles Dickens: A Critical Study. James is the author of Maps of Utopia: H.G. Wells, Modernity and the End of Culture and Unsettled Accounts: Money and Narrative Form in the Novels of George Gissing.

H. G. Wells was born in 1866 and died in 1946.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Thrilling Book!  Feb 12, 2004
The Time Machine, is a thrilling book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. One Reason, you wont want to put this book about is, all the action that goes on in each chapter. Another reason, is it gives us hope that we could change things. H.G. Wells writes about the dreams that most people have of building a real working time machine. Everyone, at some point in their lives have wondered what it would be like if we could go back or forward in time. H.G. Wells makes that dream come true for us. In the book, the Time Traveler went into the future, and he was very disappointed at what he saw. He saw that the people of the future were very uneducated. They had the mentality of a 4-year-old. It makes the Time Traveler appreciate the period of time he came from. I would recommend this book, because it shows us that no matter how much our world is struggling, we should appreciate the time we live in. God is in control and he puts us exactly were we need to be.
 
Two classic tales by the socially critical master  May 17, 2000
These two tales are a MUST for anyone who loves Wells's work. Its far-sightedness, its intuitive feel for "things to come," the sparkling lucidity of his prose, his dry wit...not to be missed. And if anything, both tales, dealing as they do with future alternatives we wouldn't wish on ourselves, remain dangerously relevant as warnings of what will happen if we don't manage the present with greater thoughtfulness and foresightedness.
