Quotes

"Man is the unnatural animal, the rebel child of nature, and more and more does he turn himself against the harsh and fitful hand that reared him."
—H.G. Wells

Bibliography

H. G. Wells was a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction. His writing career spanned over sixty years, and his early science fiction novels earned him the title (along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback) of "The Father of Science Fiction". [1]
