Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) remains one of Britain’s best known writers.
The Royal Mail issued a set of 4 stamps in 1995 to recognise Wells’ writing. Siobhan Keaney provided the illustrations for this set of stamps.
‘The Time Machine’ (1895) was his astonishing debut on the scene of world literature which set the form for this genre of writing.
‘The First Men in the Moon’ (1901) set the standard for space travel writing.
‘The War of the Worlds’ (1898) theme was alien invasion. It was another triumph in SF writing and influenced both radio and film adaptations.
‘The Shape of Things to Come’ appeared in 1933 and Wells speculates on the state of human affairs into the future
Wells also scripted the classic 1936 film, ‘Things to Come’.
