The Invisible Man

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.

The War of the Worlds

'No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was

being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's...'

So begins H. G. Wells' classic novel in which Martian lifeforms take over planet Earth. As the Martians emerge, they construct giant killing machines - armed with heatrays - that are impervious to attack. Advancing upon London they destroy everything in their path. Everything, except the few humans they collect in metal traps. Victorian England is a place in which the steam engine is state-of-the-art technology and powered flight is just a dream. Mankind is helpless against the killing machines from Mars, and soon the survivors are left living in a new stone age.

The Time Machine

A Victorian scientist develops a time machine and travels to the year 802,171 AD. There he finds the meek, child-like

Eloi who live in fear of the underground-dwelling Morlocks. When his time machine goes missing, the Traveller faces a fight to enter the Morlocks' domain and return to his own time.

THE TIME MACHINE remains one of the cornerstones of science-fiction literature and has proved hugely influential.
