Meet the Author

H. G. Wells
Herbert George "H. G." Wells (21 September 1866 - 13 August 1946) was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing textbooks and rules for war games. Together with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback, Wells has been referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction". His most notable science fiction works include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. Wells's earliest specialised training was in biology, and his thinking on ethical matters took place in a specifically and fundamentally Darwinian context. He was also from an early date an outspoken socialist, often (but not always, as at the beginning of the First World War) sympathising with pacifist views. His later works became increasingly political and didactic, and he sometimes indicated on official documents that his profession was that of "Journalist." Most of his later novels were not science fiction. Some described lower-middle class life (Kipps; The History of Mr Polly), leading him to be touted as a worthy successor to Charles Dickens, but Wells described a range of social strata and even attempted, in Tono-Bungay (1909), a diagnosis of English society as a whole. Wells also wrote abundantly about the "New Woman" and the Suffragettes (Ann Veronica).

    I saw no spelling errors or other typos in the edition from Clas

    I saw no spelling errors or other typos in the edition from Classic Romances.  If you find errors, you might want to name the edition in which you find it.  Otherwise, your missive becomes a complaint that has no meaning.

    Errors

    This book is a google book, from a santa cruz library it looks like. There are a lot of errors all over the pages, so much so, it's hard, if not impossible, to fully comprehend it's message. I would not recommend this book, only for that reason. I have not read the contents.
