H. G. Wells
H.G. Wells (1866 - 1946), in full Herbert George Wells, was an English novelist, journalist, sociologist, and historian best known for science fiction novels such as The War of the Worlds.
The Time Machine (1895) is considered to be the progenitor of the “time travel” subgenre. It has been filmed several times. Politically correct descriptions describe it as being about class struggle by the socialist Wells, less politically correct descriptions describe it as being about dystopian dysgenics by the eugenics supporter Wells.
