Overview

Three classics from the science fiction master in one volume.

From the incomparable H. G. Wells, this volume includes three novels of imagination, wit, and terror.

The Island of Doctor Moreau: The classic tale of a man’s nightmarish experience trapped on an island where a doctor conducts gruesome experiments.

The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth: A science fiction tale with satirical undertones about scientists who create a race of giants, both human and animal, and the world’s attempt to cope with them.

The First Men in the Moon: A London businessman accompanies a scientist on a journey to the lunar surface—and beneath it, when they are captured by a sophisticated society of insectoid creatures.
