Description :

The War of the Worlds
"And this Thing I saw! How can I describe it.? A monstrous tripod, higher than many houses, striding over the young pine trees, and smashing them aside in its career;
a walking engine of glittering metal..."

The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells brings home the possibility that the Earth is not only being watched but is also in imminent danger from other planetary beings! Snug in its comfortable existence and petty concerns, humanity is taken unawares when the Martians launch a vicious attack on England. Does this signal the beginning of the end for the world of men?

The Time Machine
"I am afraid I cannot convey the peculiar sensations of time travelling They are excessively unpleasant. There is a feeling exactly like that one has upon a switchback of a helpless headlong motion! I felt the same horrible anticipation, too, of an imminent smash."

The Time Machine by H. G. Wells is a thrilling adventure through time and space; a mind-boggling invention to tickle the imagination

The Time Traveller unfolds an incredible world of possibilities through his scientific creation. His journey, however, reveals a world hurtling into a darkness that portents an end to all that we hold dear.
Is this a cautionary tale for mankind? Or an answer to the future?

The Invisible Man
"But it was not that which startled Mrs. Hall. Tt was the fact that all his forehead above his blue glasses was covered by a white bandage, and that another covered his ears, leaving not a scrap face his exposed excepting only his pink, peaked nose. was bright, pink, and shiny just as it had been at first."

The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells is the tale of an incredible scientific breakthrough that leads the way to unutterable pain and horror.

A brilliant research scientist successfully renders himself invisible, His initial feelings of euphoria and power gradually dissolve into anguish and helplessness. In a feverish and desperate bid to discover the antidote, the invisible man cleaves a path of destruction and violence Will he be visible again? Or is this his descent into madness?

The Island of Doctor Moreau
The three muffled men, with the clumsiest movements, scrambled out upon the sand, and forthwith set to landing the cargo, assisted by the man on the beach. I was struck especially by the curious movements of the legs of the three swathed and bandaged
boatmen, not stiff they were, but distorted in some odd way, almost as yf they were jointed in the wrong place."

The Island of Dr Moreau by H. G. Wells is a dark and chilling tale of scientific experimentation gone too far.

Rescued after a shipwreck, Edward Prendick is brought to a remote island that hides a ghastly secret, He finds himself in the middle of a lush land nurturing a strange
population - denizens born of indescribable pain, beyond all constraints of humanity and morality. Will Prendick survive this grim and dangerous encounter?

The First Men in the Moon
"The sun had set, the sky was a vivid tranquillity of green and yellows and against that he came out black - the oddest little figure."

The chance encounter between writer and businessman Mr Bedford with eccentric scientist Dr Cavor sets in motion the fantastical quest detailed in The First Men in the Moon by H. G. Wells. The travellers fly into the lap of an incredible dystopia of discoveries. curiosities, and danger.

The story brings to the fore man's intense longing for adventure, of uncovering the unknown,; and his want towards what belongs to another.

The world Set Free
"Weren't we, perhaps, already in the throes of the last crisis, in that darkest moment of a nightmare's horror before the sleeper will endure no more of it and wakes?"

H.G. Wells' The World Set Free, written in the shadow of the impending Great War, is a chilling description of a world in the throes of a nuclear battle. Horrified by the
devastating repercussions of radiation and the wide-ranging destruction, the survivors grapple with bringing back some amount of order and sanity.

On the other hand, could the catastrophe mean freedom to create a utopia as an end to the ills and ideas of the past?

The Sleeper Awakes
He took the man by the shoulder and shook him. Are you asleep?" he said, with his voice jumping, and again, Are- you asleep?"

H.G. Wells' The Sleeper Awakes is the tale of a man who sleeps for two hundred and three years, to awaken in an altered London, as the Master of the Earth.

Graham, the Sleeper, wakes up in a society that is on the verge of unrest and revolt; and he finds himself at the centre of it all. Graham embraces his messianic destiny and decides to lead the workers in a mass uprising.

But how will it all end?

Fascinating Short Stories
A prolific writer and the Father of Science Fiction'. Wells' genius encompassed many genres. His short stories examine supernatural experiences and scientific inventions; they study the past and envision the future, they speak of magic and murder, wonder and adventure and forge the incredible into something logical and plausible.

The eighteen stories in this volume will take the reader on a whirlwind escapade of pure thrill and original ingenuity.
