    " Some great stories by the heavyweights of 20th century sci-fi. Highlights include H.G. Wells' The Door in the Wall, Frank Herbert's The Missing Link, and James Schmitz's The Winds of Time. Andre Norton's All Cats are Grey is the most obviously dated, yet still so much fun. "

    " A really nice collection of stories, only one of which I'd read before. Good SF in the, as advertised, classic genre. "

    " Most of this is dated nostalgia reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 5/21/2011

    " An interesting read though perhaps Wells' vision of the future is somewhat dated as our society moves farther away from the manufacturing of the Industrial age and more to the service and computers of the Information Age. "

    " Enjoyed this one alot, going to have the watch the movie too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 5/17/2011

    " Love the constant allegory of the destruction that mankind brought about on itself, and the terrible wrath that it played out on us through the ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/16/2011

    " The most unique view into mankind's history I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Maddox | 5/14/2011

    " I am reading it, I am enjoying it, this is my first HG Wells read. The language is antiquated, it might bother some, but it is interesting enough that I have downloaded War of the Worlds to also read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 5/13/2011

    " A fast but interesting read "

    " Where would Sci-Fi be without this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sidharth | 5/6/2011

    " I read and honestly I was not able to visualise all that he wrote whatever i was able to for that I am happy that i read this one "

    " Good, but a little too wordy... still good though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 5/2/2011

    " Finally got around to this one, and very glad I did. Prompted immediate acquisition of additional works by Wells, I so thoroughly enjoyed it. Fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ella Brooke | 5/2/2011

    " I liked the anthropological tone of the narrator describing the future races. It's definitely a product of the 1800's and was very similar to the ethnologies of the time. "

    " I did 4 book reports on this in elementary school, and I hated this book. "

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.
