H.G. Wells – Works, 24 volumes

Herbert George Wells was a product of his time, the son of a servant, he studied the sciences at university and became both a popular writer and an influential socialist intellectual with a moderately scandalous list of affairs with women. Most of his science fiction dates from early in his career, in a few short years, he invented many of the examples of the genre from The Time Machine to contact with hostile aliens (in The War of the Worlds and The First Men in the Moon) to suspended animation (in The Sleeper Awakes) and the temporary uplift of animals to sapience (in The Island of Doctor Moreau). In almost all of these cases, he creates at once a satirical comment on some trend in contemporary society, class division, imperialism and so on, and a powerful poetic myth that transcends any immediate satiric content.
