Description
This second H.G. Wells omnibus from Gollancz is another handsome tome, presenting four novels from the early master of visionary science fiction. In the Days of the Comet is a 1906 story in which the vapors of a comet bring about a profound and lasting transformation in the attitudes and perspectives of humankind. The War in the Air, from 1907, is notable for its prophetic ideas, images, and concepts—in particular the use of aircraft over the battlefield, and the coming of World War I. The 1910 dystopian tale The Sleeper Awakes centers on a man who sleeps for 203 years, waking up in a completely transformed London where he has become the richest man in the world. And the 1923 novel Men Like Gods features a journalist who finds himself in a utopian parallel universe—and as the utopian attitudes begin to have their effect on him, he finds that he and his fellow travelers may be having their own effect upon the utopia.
