This volume contains a generous selection of the tales of H. G. 
Wells, some of them famous, some forgotten. They demonstrate his immense
imaginative energy, his originality, his prophetic genius, and his 
mastery of a range embracing Gothic horror, social satire, lyrical 
reverie and Utopian fantasy.


Here Wells predicts the use of the tank, the aeroplane, the parachute
and the bathysphere; he depicts the arrival of monsters from the deep, 
and envisages the destruction of life on our planet. Nevertheless, in 
social comedy, Wells anticipates E. M. Forster. We also see why Wells 
proved to be a provocation and inspiration not only to numerous 
science-fiction writers but also to such eminent authors as Vladimir 
Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges and William Golding.
