Reader's note

H.G. Wells was once referred to as ‘the Shakespeare of Science Fiction.’ He is more often called ‘the father of Science Fiction’ and regarded, along with Jules Verne, as one of the creators of the genre. This In-depth portrait of the English novelist, sociological writer and historian looks at the life and work of Wells and considers its contribution to the Modern Day. His work and ideas have shaped not only modern science fiction but have also had a huge impact on the modern-day world as we now it. Richard Goddard, who invented the first rocket fuel said that he was inspired by reading ‘The War of the Worlds’ as a teenager. ‘Wells occupies an honoured place in science fiction. Without him, indeed, I can’t see how any of it could have happened.’ – Kingsley Amis
