The First Men in the Moon: Dover Thrift Editions

Autor H. G. Wells
en Limba Engleză Paperback – dec 2000 – vârsta de la 11 ani

Of the enormous body of work produced by H. G. Wells more than a book a year over the course of half a century the early science fiction novels that first made him famous have proved to be the most enduring and have earned him the sobriquet "the father of modern science fiction."
In the 1901 classic "The First Men in the Moon," Wells reveals not only a fertile imagination at ease with biological and astronomical phenomena, but also a passionate concern for man and society. His "first men in the moon" prove to be the eccentric Mr. Cavor and his traveling companion, Mr. Bedford, who navigate a gravity-defying sphere through space before executing a rough landing on the moon. As castaways from earth, they practice lunar locomotion, get lost in the wilds of a moon jungle, and confront intelligent life forms living in lunar caverns. Through the adventures of these two earthlings, the author is able to look at mankind from a distance and, in his words, "burlesque the effects of specialization." The result is a delightful tale filled with adventure, romance, and fantasy that is still capable of stirring the imagination of readers in the 21st century.
" Wells's science-fiction novels] achieve a near poetry which makes them part of the popular mythology of their age the best of his work has a vitality, a verve, an imaginative compulsion unsurpassed by any of his contemporaries." N. C. Nicholson, author of "H. G. Wells."

[An] informative and enjoyable introduction... which sets the book in its historical and literary context.
Very smart-looking new editions of SF classics.

Notă biografică

Hebert George Wells, known as H. G. Wells, was a British author born in 1866. He was a prolific writer, publishing works in many genres, from short stories to social commentaries. However, he is best known for his science fiction novels, leading some to call him the "father of science fiction," or even the "Shakespeare of science fiction!" Wells is known as a futurist, meaning that much of his fiction foresaw changes that have now happened in world. Wells was a socialist and a member of the Fabian society and this political background can be found in his work.
