wells

Escritor inglês, de nome completo Herbert George Wells, nascido em 1866 e falecido em 1946, teve uma infância difícil mas foi um autodidacta incansável, conseguindo licenciar-se em Ciências pela Universidade de Londres. É considerado um dos pioneiros da ficção científica. A sua obra revela fé no progresso técnico. Destacam-se, de entre os numerosos livros que publicou, The Time Machine (A Máquina do Tempo, 1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (A Ilha do Doutor Moreau, 1896) e The War of the Worlds (A Guerra dos Mundos, 1897).
