Author

H. G. Wells:

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a draper and a chemist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower and middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by a patriarchal society.
