Description :

The War of the Worlds
In this thrilling tale of alien invasion, H. G. Wells reframes the science fiction genre.
Following the travails of an unnamed narrator, The War of the Worlds reveals the true terror of life under an implacable and enigmatic foe. Armed with terrifying killing machines and Heat-Rays, the Martians arrive in London and quickly subdue the British forces. Faced with extraordinary odds and a world changed beyond all recognition, nothing less than the survival of the human race is at stake.

The Time Machine & Other Stories
H. G. Wells' first novel, The Time Machine, is rightly held to be one of the classic works of science fiction. In this fascinating collection, it is accompanied by a selection of
Wells' most entertaining short stories. Including 'The Stolen Bacillus', a timely warning of the dangers of science, and 'The Country of the Blind', which brilliantly captures life in a strange world, this fine assortment showcases the enigmatic mind of one of Britain's most talented writers. Wells' tales are as powerful and meaningful today as when they were first published more than a century ago.

The Invisible Man
In the village of Iping, a strange man arrives at a local inn wrapped in bandages. He refuses to leave his room where he is carrying out experiments to make himself invisible. The stranger's success has grave implications for everyone. When he realises that he cannot reverse the experiment, he is gradually driven insane. This seminal tale acts as a powerful warning about unintended consequences. The journey on which the invisible man embarks turns out to be a penetrating, unflinching, and unsettling look into the heart of human nature.

The Island of Doctor Moreau
A visionary and disturbing masterpiece, The Island of Doctor Moreau explores the awful potential of biological experimentation. In one of H. G. Wells' most celebrated works, the shipwrecked Edward Prendick finds himself alone on an island with the
mad scientist Doctor Moreau. When he hears strange cries echoing through the forest, he discovers that the island is inhabited by bizarre human-hybrid creatures. Prendick must escape the island before he becomes the scientist's next victim. Raising questions about morality, the hubris of science, and what it means to be human, The Island of Doctor Moreau has fascinated readers for generations.

First Men in the Moon
In one of the earliest works of science fiction, H. G. Wells brings to life the joys of space travel and humanity's boundless curiosity. When penniless businessman Mr Bedford moves to Kent to write a play, he meets mad scientist Mr Cavor who is developing an anti-gravity metal. This unlikely pair journey to the Moon using Mr Cavor's new invention. But what creatures lurk beneath its cratered surface? The First Men in the Moon is a swashbuckling adventure of discovery as well as a poignant
exploration of ethics in the face of scientific progress.
