H.G. Wells The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class.

About the book:
"The Crystal Egg" is a science fiction short story written by H. G. Wells in 1897.
The story tells of a shop owner, named Mr. Cave, who finds a strange crystal egg that serves as a window into the planet Mars.
The story was written the same year in which Wells was serializing The War of the Worlds in Pearson's Magazine, a year before it was published as a novel. Because of the vaguely similar descriptions of the Martians and their machines, "The Crystal Egg" is often considered a precursor to The War of the Worlds, though there is no clear foreshadowing of the events that transpire in the novel.

H.G. Wells This darkly satirical novel is one of the first appearances of a science fiction classic—scientific experimentation that results in gigantic plants and animals: in this case, an English countryside overrun with giant wasps, giant rodents, and giant human beings.
H.G. Wells An extremely important philosophical and political book which concerned people throughout the world, include world leaders, should pay attention to. Wells was a visionary and genius who knew the strengths and weaknesses of men's minds and the proclivities of human nature. He could see where the world needed to be going immediately after the devastation of World War I and, in effect, where it still needs to be going today in order to thrive. He predicts for the future how a political reorganization must take place with the world as a unity, and how the general masses lack any will whatsoever to make it happen. Chapters include The Probable Future of Mankind, The Project of a World State, The Bible of Civilization, The Schooling of the World, and more.
H.G. Wells Novel is notable for its prophetic ideas, including the use of the airplane for warfare, the coming of a world war, and the development of a brutal, feudal society after the war’s destruction.

The Wonderful Visit also has strong satirical themes, gently mocking customs and institutions of Victorian England as well as idealistic rebellion itself.

H.G. Wells The enterprise of Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons and the friendly accommodation of Messrs. Macmillan render possible this collection in one cover of all the short stories by me that I care for anyone to read again. Except for the two series of linked incidents that make up the bulk of the book called Tales of Space and Time, no short story of mine of the slightest merit is excluded from this volume. Many of very questionable merit find a place; it is an inclusive and not an exclusive gathering. And the task of selection and revision brings home to me with something of the effect of discovery that I was once an industrious writer of short stories, and that I am no longer anything of the kind. I have not written one now for quite a long time and in the past five or six years I have made scarcely one a year. The bulk of the fifty or sixty tales from which this present three-and-thirty have been chosen dates from the last century.
H.G. Wells This book sets out as forcibly and exactly as possible the religious belief of the writer. Its core is a profound belief in a personal and intimate God. The writer will be found to be sympathetic with all sincere religious feeling. Nevertheless it is well to prepare the prospective reader for statements that may jar harshly against deeply rooted mental habits.

H.G. Wells Prophecy may vary between being an intellectual amusement and a serious occupation; serious not only in its intentions, but in its consequences. For it is the lot of prophets who frighten or disappoint to be stoned. But for some of us moderns, who have been touched with the spirit of science, prophesying is almost a habit of mind.

H.G. Wells The Invisible Man is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells published in 1897. Originally serialized in Pearson's Weekly in 1897, it was published as a novel the same year. The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body's refractive index to that of air so that it absorbs and reflects no light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse the procedure.
While its predecessors, The Time Machine and The Island of Doctor Moreau, were written using first-person narrators, Wells adopts a third-person objective point of view in The Invisible Man.
Excerpt from Wikipedia, ‘The Invisible man’
H.G. Wells Writer examines the basics of socialist thought and theory, and looks at the differences between existing philosophies within socialism. Because he personally witnessed socialist movements in both America and England, this account is particularly thought-provoking.
