Editorial Reviews

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.
Times Literary Supplement
"Students of early science fiction will welcome the University of Nebraska Press's series Bison Frontiers of Imagination."—Times Literary Supplement

Meet the Author

H.G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'.

Patrick Parrinder has written on H.G. Wells, science fiction, James Joyce and the history of the English novel. Since 1986 he has been Professor of English at the University of Reading.

Andy Sawyer is a Librarian at the University of Sheffield with a particular interest in science fiction.

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.

I was not able to open this book; thus my rating for this particular version of the book should be NO STARS.
