War of the Worlds
The Time Machine
"I've had a most amazing time...."
So begins the Time Traveller's astonishing firsthand account of his journey eight hundred thousand years beyond his own era-and the story that launched H. G. Wells's successful career. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine's lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races-the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks-who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of tomorrow as well.
The Invisible Man
Spine-tingling and entertaining, THE INVISIBLE MAN is a science fiction classic. To its author, H.G. Wells, the novel was as compelling as "a good gripping dream." But to generations of readers, the terrible and evil experiment of the demented scientist, Griffin, has conveyed a chilling nightmare of believable horror. An atmosphere of ever increasing suspense begins with the arrival of a mysterious stranger at an English village inn and builds relentlessly to the stark terror of a victim pursued by a maniacal invisible man. The result is a masterwork: a dazzling display of the brilliant imagination, psychological insight, and literary craftsmanship that made H.G. Wells one of the most influential writers of his time.

Hailed as the founder of modern science fiction, H. G. Wells (1866-1946) wrote a brilliant succession of novels and short stories that remain in the first rank of the genre. In fantasies made credible by their simple realism, his enduringly relevant tales gave symbolic expression to the ideas and anxieties of his era.

Wells's science-fiction short stories: favorites like "The Crystal Egg," "Aepyornis Island," "The Strange Orchid," "The Man Who Could Work Miracles," "A Dream of Armageddon," "The Sea Raiders," and other tales about fourth-dimensional adventure, biological monstrosities, marvelous inventions, time distortions, cosmic catastrophe, and other intriguing events.
