'The eyes that glanced at me shone with a pale-green light' A crazed vivisectionist engineers a new super-breed of monstrous 'Beast Men' on a remote Pacific island, in H. G. Wells's Victorian scientific nightmare of man playing god. Ten new titles in the colourful, small-format, portable new Pocket Penguins series
In the space of less than four years, H. G. Wells (1866-1946) published four of the most influential, original and hair-raising of all works of science-fiction. In a life of tireless experiment, travelling and intellectual engagement, Wells was both a leading public figure and one of the great imaginers of the modern world.
