Debut Authors – What Wells Did Next…

Now I have explored the debut novel of H.G. Wells, it’s time to go a little further through the wardrobe to see what he did post-The Time Machine

Wells, HG

Author: Herbert George Wells (1866–1946)

Debut novel: The Time Machine (1895)

Age of author when debut published: 29

140 character review: A great, gentle and surprisingly accessible introduction to the science fiction genre that follows one man’s journey through time. (Original review posted here – 3 stars)

Favourite quote from debut: “It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.”

Reception of debut: Upon its publication, Wells’ debut was hailed as a masterpiece and Wells became one of the three authors credited with the birth of modern science fiction. The novel has been adapted, broadcasted and sexualised so many times through many different channels of media that Well’s debut novel has become almost synonymous with the term science fiction itself.

Other notable works:

The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896)

The Invisible Man (1897)

The War of the Worlds (1898)

The First Men in the Moon (1901)
