Herbert George Wells, better known as H.G. Wells was an English writer, one of the most popular of its era and author of some of the fundamental science fiction works, through novels like The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), The first Men in the Moon (1901), of which have been made over the years numerous film adaptations.

Along with Jules Verne, he’s considered one of the fathers of contemporary science fiction, having been able to skillfully mix fantasy atmospheres and scientific discipline, using them as a tool of moral and social analysis. However during the course of his life he explored many genres that ranged from story of human psychology to utopian novels, from social realism to social commentary.
