H.G. Wells was an English writer, prolific in many genres, but now best remembered for his science fiction novels and is often called the "father of science fiction" along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback. He was a social critic, devoted to a progressive vision. A futurist who imagined time travel, alien invasion, and biological engineering and was trained in biology. He was born and died in England. (1866-1946)
