Book Description:

A thought-provoking romantic read that shows us H.G. Wells at his refreshingly different best.

About the Author:

H.G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'.

Gillian Beer is a famed writer and critic. She is Emeritus Professor at Girton College, Cambridge.

Simon J. James is Lecturer in Victorian Literature at the University of Durham. He has written on, and edited works by, George Gissing and H.G. Wells.
