Time Machine / the Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
Book DescriptionTogether in one indispensable volume, "The Time Machine "and "The Invisible Man "are masterpieces of irony and imaginative vision from H. G. Wells, the father of science fiction. "The Time Machine" conveys the Time Traveller into the distant future and an extraordinary world. There, stranded on a slowly dying Earth, he discovers two bizarre races: the effete Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks a haunting portrayal of Darwin s evolutionary theory carried to a terrible conclusion. "The Invisible Man "is the fascinating tale of a brash young scientist who, experimenting on himself, becomes invisible and then criminally insane, trapped in the terror of his own creation. Convincing and unforgettably real, these two classics are consummate representations of the stories that defined science fiction and inspired generations of readers and writers. With an Introduction by John Calvin Batchelorand an Afterword by Paul Youngquist"

Author Biography - H. G. Wells
Herbert George Wells (1866 1946) was born in Bromley, Kent, England. His father was a professional cricketer and sometime shopkeeper, his mother a former lady s maid. Although Bertie left school at fourteen to become a draper s apprentice (a life he detested), he later won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in London, where he studied with the famous Thomas Henry Huxley. He began to sell articles and short stories regularly in 1893. In 1895, his immediately successful novel "The Time Machine" rescued him from a life of penury on a schoolteacher s salary. His other scientific romances "The Island of Dr. Moreau" (1896), "The Invisible Man "(1897), "The War of the Worlds "(1898), "The First Men in the Moon "(1901), and "The War in the Air "(1908) won him distinction as the father of science fiction. Henry James saw in Wells the most gifted writer of the age, but Wells, having coined the phrase the war that will end war to describe World War I, became increasingly disillusioned and focused his attention on educating mankind with his bestselling "Outline of History" (1920) and his later utopian works. Wells witnessed a world more terrible than any of his imaginative visions, and he bitterly observed: Reality has taken a leaf from my book and set itself to supercede me. John Calvin Batchelor is the acclaimed author of such imaginative novels as "The American Falls," "People s Republic of Antarctica," and "Gordon Liddy Is My Muse." Paul Youngquist is professor of English and associate chair of Graduate Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. He s the author of three books: "Race, Romanticism, and The Atlantic"; "Madness and Blake s Myth" (1991); and "Monstrosities: Bodies and British Romanticism "(2003), as well as numerous articles on a variety of subjects."
