This volume contains 33 short stories written by H. G. Wells. The stories were specially chosen by Wells as those that he most wanted to reflect his legacy in short story form. The collection includes the title story – his most well-known – and other masterpieces including the chilling revenge story "The Cone" and "The New Accelerator", a masterful example of his early comedic style. Contents include: “The Jilting Of Jane”, “The Cone”, “The Stolen Bacillus”, “The Flowering Of The Strange Orchid”, “The Avu Observatory”, “Aepyornis Island”, “The Remarkable Case Of Davidson's Eyes”, “The Lord Of The Dynamos”, “The Moth”, “The Treasure In The Forest”, “The Story Of The Late Mr. Elvesham”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
