Nell'Inghilterra di fine Ottocento, un eccentrico scienziato e inventore, grande conoscitore di fisica e meccanica, racconta ai suoi più stretti amici di aver trovato il modo di viaggiare nel tempo, ma il suo racconto non viene creduto. Pochi giorni dopo, durante una cena molto importante a casa sua, il protagonista ricompare in uno stato veramente terrificante: oltre al colorito pallido e all'espressione sconvolta tutto il suo corpo è ricoperto di ferite e cicatrici e i suoi abiti sono sporchi e distrutti.

Ursula K.Le Guin's delightfully selected best stories of H.G.Wells. There are 26 stories in the book. Le Guin notes she selected stories for excellence. It is impossible to admire a visionary who invented the word 'aeroplane', and who also predicted tank warfare and biological warfare. Interesting and very amusing to read.

H .G. WELLS


Herbert George Wells was a product of his time – the son of a servant, he studied the sciences at university and became both a popular writer and an influential socialist intellectual with a moderately scandalous list of affairs with women. Most of his science fiction dates from early in his career – in a few short years, he invented many of the obsessional tropes of the genre from The Time Machine to contact with hostile aliens (in The War of the Worlds and The First Men in the Moon) to suspended animation (in The Sleeper Awakes) and the temporary uplift of animals to sapience (in The Island of Doctor Moreau). In almost all of these cases, he creates at once a satirical comment on some trend in contemporary society – class division, imperialism and so on – and a powerful poetic myth that transcends any immediate satiric content; when we think of the effete Eloi and subterranean Morlocks in The Time Machine, it is not just of aristocrats and proletarians that we think.

The Fiction

The writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890 - 1937) is known as the father of modern American horror. He took horror away from the Christian centered dark fantasy of the 19th century (i.e. cross-fearing vampires, tormented ghostly souls) and replaced it with an uncaring universe of horrible monsters and terrible alien gods. Central to Lovecraft's universe were the Great Old Ones, immense beings, often of incredible intelligence, that rule time and space. These creatures await a time when the "stars are right" to return to power on Earth, often aided by deranged, evil cultists. World wide conspiracies and hidden, alien societies abound. Lovecraft was also capable of more intimate horror. Strange, amorphous things hide in cellars or attics, and unearthly voices echo deep inside crypts.
At the same time, Lovecraft also created the Dreamlands, a sometimes horrific, sometimes beautiful world that is one of the most interesting fantasy realms ever developed. Influenced by Lord Dunsannay, this is the world where your sleeping self goes when you dream. It's a world of castles and sailing ships, ruins and monsters.

H. G. Wells once said, ""The most interesting history of the [entire] 19th century was the growth of the United States."" The years from 1850 to 1875 demonstrate the truth of this assessment.

Non c’è dubbio, la Terra invasa dalle creature di un altro mondo è uno degli scenari preferiti della fantascienza.
Chi può dimenticare La guerra dei mondi di H.G. Wells o la versione radiofonica di Orson Welles che scatenò il panico in tutta l’America? Ma anche se dopo le esplorazioni del pianeta rosso nessuno sembra più credere ai Marziani, l’universo è sconfinato e gli alieni sono sempre in agguato. È una paura sottile, persistente, quella che ci accompagna: svegliarci un giorno e vedere all’improvviso il cielo riempirsi di astronavi, pronte a seminare terrore e distruzione con le armi sofisticate di una civiltà avanzatissima…
