Über den Autor

H. G. Wells, born Herbert George Wells on September 21, 1866, in Bromley, Kent, was a prolific English writer, often referred to as the father of science fiction. Wells's works are renowned for their foresight and imaginative explorations of futuristic themes, underpinned by a deep understanding of the human condition and societal critique. His seminal 'The Dystopian Trilogy,' encompassing revered novels such as 'The Time Machine' (1895), 'The Invisible Man' (1897), and 'The War of the Worlds' (1898), cemented his reputation as a master storyteller and a prescient social commentator. Through 'The Time Machine,' Wells extrapolated the concerns of Victorian England into a divided future humanity, turning a scientific romance into a vehicle for reflecting on class disparity. 'The Invisible Man' scrutinized the risks of uncontrolled scientific inquiry, while 'The War of the Worlds' famously unsettled readers with its chilling account of an alien invasion, highlighting the fragility of human civilization. Wells's embrace of dystopian themes sharply contrasted with the utopian tendencies of his contemporaries, making his work both unique and compelling. Beyond these iconic texts, Wells's bibliography includes scores of other novels, short stories, and non-fiction works, solidifying his legacy as a cornerstone of both speculative fiction and modern English literature. His influence has been widely acknowledged by subsequent generations of science fiction writers. Wells died on August 13, 1946, but his literature endures, continuously serving as an inspiration and a lens through which to question humanity's place in the universe.
