INVISIBLE MAN


INVISIBLE MAN

H. G. WELLS    Book Number: 88595    Product format: Paperback

Introduced by Adam Roberts this is in the SF Masterworks bright yellow Gollancz series. H. G. Wells (1866-1946) won a scholarship to study under T. H. Huxley, and through his trail-blazing works of science fiction, his prophetic imagination and his championing of socialism, science and women's rights, Wells became a hugely influential figure of international renown. 'The Invisible Man' is his great novel of the dangers of science. It describes a man cast out from society by his own terrifying discovery. It is the story of Griffin, a brilliant and obsessed scientist dedicated to achieving invisibility. Taking whatever necessary action to keep his incredible discovery safe, he terrorises the local village where he has sought refuge. Wells skilfully weaves the themes of science, terror and pride as the invisible Griffin gradually loses his sanity and, ultimately, his humanity. 144pp in paperback.
