Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's one of the most famous novels of the 19th century, and probably the one that's least actually read. *The Invisible Man,* first published in 1897, became the basis for the classic 1933 film starring Claude Rains-as well as its many spinoffs-but the novel is quite different: it's an early example of science fantasy that was as much about character as it was about concept. One of the most enduringly popular writers of modern literature, Wells here assured his position as one of the fathers of imaginative literature with his psychologically complex tale of a scientist who renders himself invisible and eventually goes mad because of it. And because it focuses more on people than on technology, it remains a compelling tale even more than a century after it was written. British author HERBERT GEORGE WELLS (1866-1946) is best known for his groundbreaking science fiction novels *The Time Machine* (1895), *The Invisible Man* (1897), and *The War of the Worlds* (1898).

About the Author

Considered one of the pioneers of science fiction, Herbert George Wells was born on September 21, 1866 in England.

At the age of eighteen, Wells joined The Normal School of Science in Kensington to study Biology. Here he was taught by TH Huxley. This was a crucial period of his life as it had an immense influence on his writing later in life.

Wells received a Bachelor of Science from the University of London in 1890 and began to teach. He enjoyed writing stories and articles alongside his day job and gradually moved into writing on a full time basis.

While most famous for his work in science fiction, Wells worked on a variety of genres. An advocate of social change and member of the British socialist group, the Fabian Society, Wells spent much of his later years writing about his views on politics and society, and even offered predictions about the direction in which the world was headed. HG Wells continued writing until his death at the age of 79 in 1946.
