    One thought on “The Collector's Book of Science Fiction by H.G. Wells”

    1. The stories in this collection are presented complete with illustrations as they originally appeared in the magazines of the time Reading them is like stepping backward a century to the origins of the genre we now call science fiction It s an enlightening trip This was a different world in some ways, culturally, politically, and technologically When these were written, people still speculated about the existence of complex life on Mars, Venus, and the Moon, and in some of these stories, we see t [...]

    2. I don t think I d read anything by Wells previously, although I knew the basic outlines of some of his stories from other sources and popular culture in general This volume includes the full novels The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon, and When the Sleeper Wakes, all printed in the form in which they originally appeared when serialized in magazines, as well as several short stories Some of them are fairly forgettable, but they all show a large amount of creativity It s interesting to [...]

    3. I first read this in 4th 5th grade, so not too long after it was originally printed I recently acquired a copy that was printed in 1986 with a dust jacket featuring a scene from War of the Worlds That particular copy isn t in the database and wouldn t let me put the picture of the dust jacket when I tried to create a new book but nonetheless it s still a fantastic read of his imaginative tales along with the accompanying pictures published during the first time his works were printed.

    4. Wells does not carry on He is very good at short and sweet His novels generally are not long and he still packs a really good story into a small amount of pages His short works are even quicker Well crafted, inventive and adventurous He has social commentary in these too I like short story collections because you re allowed to take your time With Wells, its easy to sit down and think you are taking your time and before you know it, you ll finish reading everyone of these stories in one sitting G [...]

    5. I greatly enjoyed the short stories contained within this book Long gone is the golden age of sci fi but with books like this it is easy to look back on those days and enjoy all they had to offer To be fair the longer works I have not read so my review only applies to the short stories.

    6. Apart from having a lot of Wells s short stories all in one place, it s a compiling of facsimiles of their original magazine presentations It s a fun contrivance, and while the experience is not quite the same as it would have been for the late Victorian reader, it s certainly interesting.
