    " Not as good as Wells' novels, but his short stories like this are weird and different enough for some interesting reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Marts (Thinker) | 5/5/2013

    " An unusual short story by Wells, much unlike science fiction novels this one is just bordering the horror genre... "

    " Anything from H G Wells stands the test of time. Still fresh. A master story teller and most of his stories have been made into movies and radio dramas. "
