About H. G. Wells
''Herbert George Wells'' (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946),<ref name = Parrinder/> better known as ''H. G. Wells'', was an English writer best remembered today for the science fiction novels he published between 1895 and 1901: 'The Time Machine', 'The Island of Doctor Moreau', 'The Invisible Man', 'The War of the Worlds', 'The Sleeper Awakes', and 'The First Men in the Moon'. Wells and Jules Verne are each sometimes referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction".<ref>Adam Charles Roberts(2000), [http://books.google.com/books?vid=ISBN0415192056&id=IRw_MIPjnXwC&pg=PA48&lpg=PA48&ots=WBbd3Gvw1g&dq=father+of+science+fiction+H.+G.+Wells&sig=vOAavBXpeRWlJh11l2OCXlb2wvk "The History of Science Fiction": Page 48] in 'Science Fiction', Routledge, ISBN 0-415-19204-8. Others who are popularly called the "Fathers of Science Fiction" include Hugo Gernsback.</ref>
He was an outspoken socialist and a pacifist; his later works becoming increasingly political and didactic. His middle period novels (1900-1920) were more realistic; they covered lower middle class life ('The History of Mr Polly') and the 'New Woman' and the Suffragettes ('Ann Veronica'). He was a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction, and produced works in many genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary.
