About the Book

In H. G. Wells' science fiction book In the Days of the Comet (1906), when a comet forces "the nitrogen of the air, the ancient azote," to "transform out of itself," mankind is "exalted." As a result, there is peace on earth and goodwill toward all people. Our atmosphere is one of happiness and beauty.
The prologue and epilogue of "The Man Who Wrote in the Tower" are written by an unidentified narrator. In Book I, William ("Willie") Leadford, who was "third in the office staff of Rawdon's pot-bank [a facility where pottery is created] in Clayton," leaves his employment at the same moment that industrial Britain is devastated by a slump brought on by American dumping. Leadford, who was converted to socialism by his friend "Parload," attributes his miserable living situation on racial injustice. The exact date of the incident is unknown.
Leadford awakens at the beginning of Book II, when he is intensely aware of the beauty in the world and has a kind and giving attitude toward other people. Verrall, Leadford, and Nettie have a passionate conversation about their futures at the start of Book III. By her "uncomfortable awareness of significant moral inequalities," the author is worried.

About Author

H.G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was an English author who lived from 21 September 1866 to 13 August 1946. He was a prolific writer across various genres who produced dozens of short stories and more than fifty books. Along with works of social commentary, his nonfiction output included essays on politics, history, popular science, satire, biography, and autobiography. Wells has been dubbed the "father of science fiction" and is now primarily known for his science fiction books. He had fallen in love with one of his students, Amy Catherine Robbins (1872–1927), with whom he relocated to Working, Surrey, in May 1895, and the couple decided to split up in 1894. His early writings, dubbed "scientific romances," included The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, When the Sleeper Wakes, and The First Men in the Moon, among other works, and established several ideas that are now considered classics in science fiction. In addition, he produced acclaimed realistic novels like Kipps and Tono-Bungay, which was a satire of Edwardian English culture. At the age of 79, Wells passed away at his London house on 13 Hanover Terrace, which had a view of Regent's Park, for undetermined reasons.
