Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement
"Students of early science fiction will welcome the University of Nebraska Press's series Bison Frontiers of Imagination."—Times Literary Supplement
Library Journal
This trio are from Wells's utopian writings, which generally chronicle a future society of potential greatness that has failed its mission and gone to seed. Not as posh as the "Deluxe Classics Editions," these nonetheless feature many nice extras, including scholarly introductions. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 - 13 August 1946, known as H. G. Wells, was a prolific English writer in many genres, including the novel, history, politics, and social commentary, and textbooks and rules for war games. Wells is now best remembered for his science fiction novels, and is called the father of science fiction, along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback.His most notable science fiction works include The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times.

As a creative writer his reputation mainly rested on the early science fiction books and on the comic novels. In his science fiction, he took the ideas and fears that haunted the mind of his age and gave them symbolic expression as brilliantly conceived fantasy made credible by the quiet realism of its setting.

His best work has a vigour, vitality, and enthusiasm unsurpassed, in its way, by that of any other British writer of the entire 20th century.

But, could you move he rules to res seven, and maybe bios could go res eight. Shouldnt the multi res be the rp? Sorry, just wanting to help. I really hope this rp gets more players. I'm from Pacific time and i get SO bored at night, I stay up until like, two or three AM....

Welcome to the late-night RP! This is just a place where late-night RPers can gather since not many people are on then. By this I especially mean those in Pacific Time, but also late-nighters from time zones east of that. Don't expect this place to be active during the day; it's nocturnal. So if you find yourself bored at night, come here to talk! <p> Rules&diams <br> 1. No godmodding. <br> 2. No bullying. <br> 3. Find books for se<_>x. <br> 4. Keep it appropriate enough for say... an eleven year old. <p> It's a multires, so enjoy :)

A minor Wells work, but still worth reading. Most of the futer tech is dated, but I liked the aeroplanes. What stands out is Wells understanding of people.
