Author Biography - H. G. Wells
H. G. Wells is widely regarded as being one of the fathers of science fiction. Among his most famous 'scientific romances' (as Wells called them) are "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Island of Dr Moreau" (1896), "The Invisible Man" (1897) and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). These SF works contained many pioneering ideas and were hugely influential in shaping other authors' visions of the future. In later life Wells abandoned science fiction in favour of social and comic novels such as "Kipps" (1905), "Tono-Bungay" (1909) and "The History of Mr Polly" (1910). Wells died in 1946, aged 80.
