Herbert George Wells (H.G. Wells) is an English writer who excelled in many genres, including many novels, short stories, and social commentary, history, satire, biography, and autobiography. Apart from this, he has also written books on entertainment, war, and sports. He is most remembered in the modern era for his science fiction novels and for that he is often called the “father of science fiction” with Jules Verne and publisher Hugo Gernbach.
H.G. Wells was foremost as a pioneer, even future social critic, who devoted his literary talent to the development of progressive vision globally. He was also a futurist, wrote many utopian works, and predicted the arrival of such things as aircraft, tanks, space travel, nuclear weapons, satellite television, and the World Wide Web.
His science fiction stories included time travel, invasion of Earth by alien beings, invisibility, and imagery of biological engineering. It is for Wells’s far-sighted thinking that Brian Aldis refers to Wells as the “Shakespeare of Science Fiction”. Wells rendered his works by establishing general elaboration with an extraordinary notion – called the “Rule of Wales” – led by Joseph Conrad in 1898 to call him “O Realist of the Fantastic!” where did it go.
His most notable science fiction works include The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), and the military science fiction The War in the Air (1907) Huh.). Wells was nominated four times for the Nobel Prize in his literature.
In the beginning, Wells was particularly trained in biology, so his thinking on ethical matters was in a particular and fundamental context of Darwinian. He was also an outspoken socialist from the earliest times, but also sympathetic to pacifist views. His later works became increasingly political and didactic, and he wrote very little science fiction, while he occasionally hinted at official documents, stating that his profession was that of a journalist.
Novels such as Kipps and The History of Mr. Polly, which describe lower-middle-class life, suggested that H.G. Wells was a worthy successor to Charles Dickens, but Wells described a range of social societies and even attempted in the diagnosis of English society in Tono-Bungé (1909). Wells was a diabetic and in 1934 co-founded the charity The Diabetic Association (today is known as Diabetes).
