Herbert George “H. G.” Wells was an English writer. Although he was prolific in many genres, including the novel, history, politics, social commentary, and textbooks and rules for war games, he is now best known for his science fiction novels. A four time Nobel Prize nominee in literature, he is even referred to as the “father of science fiction.”
His most notable science fiction work includes The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898).
