Herbert George Wells, often referred to as H. G. Wells, was an English writer best known for his science fiction works that gave a vision of the future. An avid reader since a very young age, Wells became a literary sensation with the publication of his novel The Time Machine. H.G. Wells is best remembered for his science fiction novels, and his influence on this genre is so significant that he is known as “the father of science fiction.” His most notable works include The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898).
Wells was among the first to write about time machines and alien invasions. His most famous works have never been out of print, and their influence is still seen in modern books, films and television shows.
