Overview

This luxurious hardcover edition brings together the greatest works of H.G. Wells, featuring silver embossing, gilded page edges and beautiful end-papers.

The War of the Worlds is Wells' classic tale of alien invasion. Following the travails of an unnamed narrator, it reveals the true terror of life under an implacable and enigmatic foe.

The Time Machine is one of the earliest and most compelling stories of time travel ever written, as a Victorian scientist transports himself to the alien world of the far future where a sinister evil lurks beneath the surface.

The Invisible Man
tells the tale of a scientist who has found a way to make himself invisible. Freed from the constraints of the law and rejected from a society that fears him, Griffin descends into madness. Wells' disturbing and insightful novel explores the question of morality when a man is free to do as he pleases without risk of being caught...

This Wibalin-bound volume makes the perfect gift or collectible, celebrating the 'father of science fiction' H.G. Wells.
