It was the first time had I ever read Wells, and it was a lasting experience to me. There was especially one obscure little story tha Cephalopods, Apples, Mushrooms, Graves — A Typical Wells Salad In my university days, I once borrowed from the vaults of the English department of the library a veritable doorstopper of a book that histori to contain all the collected short stories H.
Claiming that this is one of the Apples from the Tree of Knowledge, the stranger tells Mr. Hinchcliff of his qualms about eating it. Would knowledge be worth the potential heartaches involved in also knowing the most secret thoughts of everyone around us? This is just one of the questions the elderly man asks himself before he finally yields to an impulse and gives the apple to Hinchcliff, already repenting his premature decision when the train is carrying him on, leaving Hinchcliff on the platform.
Hinchcliff, full of the proprieties his new position demands of him, does not know what to do with the apple: If one of the boys should come by, it might do him a serious injury with his discipline so to be seen. And the juice might make his face sticky and get upon his cuffs — or it might be an acid juice as potent as lemon, and take all the colour out of his clothes. This little oyras pretty much sums up all there is to know about knowledge: The fact that it might be a double-edged sword, nsrraciones you much more than you bargained for, the inextricable hkstoria between knowledge and regret, but also the circumstance that university people are often more concerned about mores and the proprieties of their day and age than about the acquisition of knowledge.
I think you will find it hard not to read this book too quickly, a book that gives you a good impression of the manifold narrative voices of H.

Wells’ early SF novels are part of our culture’s consciousness by now, but it is here in the short story form that I was able to fully appreciate his astonishing range.

I imagine most of these were written before he was famous, certainly before he was considered a science fiction writer. In that sense you get to see a new genre coming into being here, history being made.
Many of the expected elements are present but there are some unexpected ones too. In several stories he takes on narracionees comic voice with a sinister edge. I can’t help but hear in it the overtones of a post-Victorian age, where things we used to know are perhaps not so intelligible anymore.
I felt much the same way here as I did after reading Poe’s complete stories. By going beyond the most famous tales I got a much more complete sense of the author’s work. Now ka I return to those famous stories again I’ll appreciate them all the more.
Next up is Tales of Space of Time, his third collection. I’m reading from the green hardback omnibus put out by Gollancz in It has all five collections plus enough uncollected stuff to make a sixth. It’s a great volume and it claims to be complete.

The Plattner Story and Others by H.G. Wells
InHerbert George H. Wells was born to a working class family in Kent, England. Young Wells received a spotty education, interrupted by several illnesses and family difficulties, and became a draper’s apprentice plattjer a teenager.
The headmaster of Midhurst Grammar School, where he had spent a year, arranged for him to return as an “usher,” or student teacher.
Wells earned a government schol InHerbert George H. Wells earned a government scholarship into study biology under Thomas Henry Huxley at the Normal School of Science.
Wells earned his bachelor of science and doctor of science degrees at the University of London. After marrying his cousin, Isabel, Wells began to supplement his teaching salary with short stories and freelance articles, then books, including The Time MachineThe Island of Dr. Wells created a mild scandal when he divorced his cousin to marry one of his best students, Amy Catherine Robbins.
Although his second marriage was lasting and produced two sons, Wells was an unabashed advocate of free as opposed to “indiscriminate” love. He continued to openly have extra-marital liaisons, most famously with Margaret Sangerand a ten-year relationship with the author Rebecca Westwho had one of his two out-of-wedlock children.
A one-time member of the Fabian Society, Wells sought active change. Although Wells toyed briefly with the idea of a “divine will” in his book, God the Invisible Kingit was a temporary aberration.
Wells used his international fame to promote his favorite causes, including the prevention of war, and was received by government officials around the world. He is best-remembered as an early writer of science fiction and futurism.
He was also an outspoken socialist.
