A thrilling science fiction classic, with an introduction by M.T. Anderson.
On a cold day in February, a stranger arrives in the village of Iping. He wears gloves and dark glasses, even inside, and his face is covered in bandages.

The Invisible Man is a dangerous enemy who must be stopped. But if no one can see him, how can he be caught?
