Wells Done

“Yet Wells was arguably the most prolific and successful writer of his age. Books and articles poured out of him: political theory, history, popular science, and a series of stories that collided mind-bending ideas with brilliantly matter-of-fact prose, starting with The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds. Reputations have been made on fewer and lesser works, but for Wells the books just kept on coming. For him, writing was like scratching an endless itch.”

Robert Douglas-Fairhurst reviews Michael Sherborne’s soon-to-be-released biography of H.G. Wells, H.G. Wells: Another Kind of Life, in London’s Daily Telegraph.
