In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. A Penguin author since 1936, H. G. Wells once said of Penguin founder, Sir Allen Lane: It is delightful to find one publisher exists who does not suffer from contagious cold feet'. Wells was the founding father of modern science fiction, writing powerfully prescient tales that placed ordinary figures in incredible situations. These stories from the greatest of modern dreamers consider the gift of sight and the possibility of using science to see vast distances, and speculate on the impending threat of biological warfare.
