About Author

H. G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was born on 21 September, 1866. He was an English author. He wrote many books, brief tales, and works of social discourse, history, parody, account, and self-portrayal. Two of his books were written on recreational war games. In the present times, Wells is known for his sci-fi books and is frequently called the father of sci-fi". In his own lifespan, he was regarded as a forward-looking, social critic who gave his scholarly abilities to the improvement of an ever-evolving vision on a worldwide scale. As a futurist, he composed various idealistic works and predicted the approach of an airplane, tanks, space travel, atomic weapons, satellite TV, and something that seemed similar to the World Wide Web. His sci-fis were based upon topics like time travel, allien intrusion, invisibility, and bio-engineering. Brian Aldiss alluded to Wells as the "Shakespeare of sci-fi", while American essayist Charles Fort alluded to him as a "wild ability". Wells delivered his works persuading by imparting ordinary detail close by a solitary phenomenal suspicion for every work - named "Wells' regulation" - allowing Joseph Conrad to hail him in 1898 as "O Realist of the Fantastic!". His most striking sci-fi works incorporate The Time Machine (1895), which was his first novel, The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), and the tactical sci-fi The War in the Air (1907). Wells got nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature several times. Wells was professionally trained in biology and his reasoning on legal matters occurred in a context that referred to Darwin. He was a frank communist since early on, frequently (however not generally, as toward the start of the First World War) identifying with conservative perspectives. His later works turned out to be progressively political and instructional. Books, for example, Kipps and The History of Mr. Polly, which portray lower-working class life, prompted the idea that he was the deserved successor to Charles Dickens, however, Wells depicted a scope of social layers and tries to bring out the English society as a whole in Tono-Bungay (1909). Wells was diabetic and was the co-founder of the foundation 'The Diabetic Association' (referred to now as Diabetes UK) in 1934.
