Summary

The final installment in Penguin Classics’s landmark H. G. Wells series Although best known for his novels, it was in his early short fiction that H. G. Wells first explored the relationship between the fantastical and everyday. Here horror meets humor, man-eating squids invade the sleepy Devon coast, and strange kinks and portals in space and time lead to other worlds—a marvelous literary universe showcasing the author’s fascination with the wonders and perils of scientific progress.
