FOOD OF THE GODS: And How It Came to Earth


FOOD OF THE GODS: And How It Came to Earth

H. G. WELLS    Book Number: 84290    Product format: Paperback

Bensington and Redwood, existentially myopic scientists, create 'Herakleophorbia' or 'Boomfood', a dietary stimulant that provokes giganticism in the creatures that eat it. But the substance escapes into the environment, and the southeast of England is plagued by waves of giant vegetation, wasps, rats and other beasts, and eventually giant human beings. It is a superb central conceit with gripping set-pieces, and the eloquent, imagination-haunting quality of H. G. Wells' best SF. The mad professors were responsible for the most important development in the evolution of man for they had found the Food of the Gods, and a new kind of human, intellectually and physically superior. A wonderful and terrifying possibility. In the SF Masterworks yellow jacketed series from Gollancz and with an introduction by Adam Roberts. 209pp in paperback.
