Prolific English writer, satirist, journalist, historian, sociologist and political philosopher, best known for his science-fantasy novels.
Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) is best known today for his early science fiction tales, but he also wrote historical novels, history, and social commentary. Wells worked as a draper, a chemist, and a teacher before becoming a successful novelist. Wells wrote prophetic fiction—he wrote stories of sexual freedom, suburban sprawl, and nuclear war. A committed socialist, he also wrote utopian tales and popular world history.
