So often associated with science fiction and stories of the supernatural, H. G. Wells also had a flair for the comedic and the absurd. His short story Mr. Brisher's Treasure delights with a title character given to broad, slapstick behavior and mannerisms that could make one nearly drop their book chuckling.

The treasure trove he discovers in the most unlikely of places leads to impromptu plotting to take possession of it right under the noses of others. Complications, blunders, and a violent lightning storm lead to a marvelous, ironic twist. Download and start listening now!

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.
