H. G. WellsScientific visionary. Social prophet. Master storyteller. Few novelists have captivated generations of readers like H. G. Wells. In enduring, electrifying detail, he takes us to dimensions of time and space that have haunted our dreams for centuries -- and shows us ourselves as we really are. The time machineIn the heart of Victorian England, an inquisitve gentleman known only as the Time Traveler constructs an elaborate invention that hurtles him hundreds of thousands of years into the future. There he finds himself in the violent center of the ultimate conflict between beings of light and creatures of darkness.The war of the worldsMartians invade Great Britain, laying waste turn-of-the-century London. This tale of conquest by superior beings with superadvanced technology is so nightmarishly real that an adaptation by Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater sent hundreds of impressionable radio listeners into panicked flight forty years after the story's original publication.

5.0 Genious
I absolutely loved reading the genius and literary art of H.G. Wells. He was very creative and imaginative pioneering the future of both the time machine and attacks from another planet.

4.0 The Time Machine/The War of the Worlds
If you're going to read either of these two books, get this edition. It has a really nifty introduction by Isaac Asimov that details the history of science fiction and H.G. Wells's enormous contribution thereto. Ha, I just used "thereto."
