H. G. Wells (1866-1946) is widely considered the father of the science fiction genre. His stories examine space and time travel, alien worlds, and the destructive potential of modern technology. Wells' influence is far reaching and remains potent today. "The Country of the Blind and Other Stories" collects thirty-three of Wells' most renowned short stories. In "The Country of the Blind," perhaps his most famed shorter work, Nunez the mountaineer falls does the side of a mountain on an expedition only to discover an isolated valley with a mysterious populace where everyone is blind. In "The Crystal Egg," an antiques dealer discovers a mysterious crystal egg that allows him to remotely view the planet Mars. "The Man Who Could Work Miracles" follows an individual whose supernatural talents gradually become problematic and even disastrous. These are only a few of the many exciting tales contained in this edition by England's most respected science fiction author.
