Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific English writer and pioneer of the science fiction genre. His works, including "The Time Machine" and "The Invisible Man", imagined fantastic scenarios that both entertained and provoked deeper contemplation of humanity's future. Wells' forward-thinking narratives continue to inspire authors and captivate readers to this day.
