Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer of science fiction stories and novels, and is credited with being the father of science fiction.

A Deal in Ostriches is an amusing tale about a situation on a ship returning from the Indies with several passengers and five ostriches on board. One of the ostriches swallows a valuable diamond—but nobody knows which bird it was. This leads to an auction of the ostriches, at which the bidding is frantic as the passengers calculate their chances for recovering the precious stone.”

About the Author

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist 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-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
