H. G. Wells (1866–1946), is often called the “Father of Science Fiction.” While science fiction was his most popular genre, Wells also wrote on history, politics, and made social commentary. His “scientific romances” speculated about the future, scientific advancements, and outer space. His works include The Time Machine, and The War of the Worlds.
