Herbert George "H. G." Wells (21 September 1866 - 13 August 1946) was an English writer. Although he was prolific in many genres, he is best remembered for his science fiction novels, including "The Time Machine "(1895), "The Island of Doctor Moreau" (1896), and "The Invisible Man" (1897). Contents include: "Petersburg in Collapse", "Drift and Salvage", "The Quintessence of Bolshevism", "The Creative Effort in Russia", "The Petersburg Soviet", "The Dreamer in the Kremlin", and "The Envoy". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
