About the Author
Wells, who rose from obscurity to world fame, had an emotionally and intellectually turbulent life.

Wells set the bar on capturing all the elements of a great science fiction tale.

Plausible and wonderful science concepts at it's heart.
And finally an opened ended story to leave us all hanging and thinking of what happened to our hero next.
