9780575115378: The Invisible Man (SF Masterworks)

H.G. Wells' great novel of the dangers of science describes a man cast out from society by his own terrifying discovery.

THE INVISIBLE MAN tells the story of Griffin, a brilliant and obsessed scientist dedicated to achieving invisibility. Taking whatever action is necessary to keep his incredible discovery safe, he terrorises the local village where he has sought refuge. Wells skilfully weaves the themes of science, terror and pride as the invisible Griffin gradually loses his sanity and, ultimately, his humanity.

About the Author:

H G Wells was born in Bromley, Kent in 1866. After working as a draper's apprentice and pupil-teacher, he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in 1884, studying under T. H. Huxley. He was awarded a first-class honours degree in biology and resumed teaching but had to retire after a kick from an ill-natured pupil afflicted his kidneys. He worked in poverty in London as a crammer while experimenting in journalism and stories. It was with THE TIME MACHINE (1895) that he had his real breakthrough.

Review:

A classic study of scientific hubris brought to destruction―THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE FICTION

Wells' scientific romances were works of art with unique relevance for our times

The Prospero of all the brave new worlds of the mind, and the Shakespeare of science fiction
