Description:
This collection of short stories can be a very accessible introduction to the writings of H. G Wells. All of the stories are highly original and idiosyncratic, but a few familiar themes readily emerge - biological weapons, carnivorous plants, strange creatures in remote parts of the World, hallucinations and telepathic visions, etc.
