Overview

H. G. Wells's short story "The Door in the Wall" was first published in 1911 as part of a collection titled "The Door in the Wall, and Other Stories".

The conflict between science and imagination is the major theme of the story, which was enormously popular when it first appeared.

Today Wells's reputation rests almost entirely upon his science fiction novels, which include The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898), all of which are acknowledged classics of the science fiction genre and continue to be widely read and adapted into other media.

"The Door in the Wall" is considered by both readers and critics to be Wells's finest short story.
