H.G. Wells, best remembered for imaginative novels such as The Invisible Man and The War of the Worlds, prototypes for modern science fiction, was a prolific writer and one of the most versatile in the history of English letters. He produced an average of nearly three books a year for more than fifty years, in addition to hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. His works ranged from fiction to history, science, social activism, literary criticism, biography, and film.

English writer H.G. Wells is best known for his classic science fiction novels and stories. Wells was one of the first and most influential modern science fiction writers, and his yarns are distinguished by their creative speculative thinking and insightful social commentary. As he grew older, his early enthusiasm gave way to cynicism, but the quality of his early works justifies the title "Father of Science Fiction."
