Summary

Summary

A stranger arrives in a small English town, wreathed in a hat, coat, goggles, and bandages. It’s not just his identity he’s hiding, though; he has discovered the secret of invisibility, and believes it will lead him to ultimate power. But he needs to be able to control the process, and when the terrified villagers refuse to help him, he decides on bloody revenge. An immediate success when it first appeared, H. G. Wells’ adventure is at once chilling and thrilling, and one of the undisputed classics of science fiction.

Author Bio: H. G. Wells

Author Bio: H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
