Author Spotlight: H.G. Wells

timemachineinvisibleI read this Barnes & Noble H.G. Wells omnibus one summer, back when I was in high school. The Time Machine is the story of a time traveler who voyages into the future and meets bizarre human-like species – and almost doesn’t get back to his own time. I could imagine this was the original Star Trek when it first was published. I believe Wells was one of, if not the, first science fiction writers.

The Invisible Man  is another old-school sci-fi,chronicling a fellow who discovers how to make himself invisible. However, he doesn’t use this phenomenon for good, but for bad, and becomes miserable by his predicament.
