H. G. Wells
Edited by Roger Luckhurst

Oxford World's Classics

  • It is the 150th anniversary of H. G. Wells's birth in 2016
  • Uses first 1895 book edition, but tracks Wells's changes from earlier serialisations, since the book had a very long and complicated pre-publication history
  • Contextual introduction by leading scholar of late Victorian popular fiction
  • Includes appendix with excised longer version of Wells's vision for the death of the planet
  • Contains additional two essays by Wells on the same themes, 'Zoological Retrogression' (1891) and 'On Extinction' (1893)
