    The influence of H.G. Wells remains with us to this day. His literary blockbusters The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The First Men in the Moon are still practically household names today. In sheer volume, Wells wrote more words than Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare combined. Although his prolific pen did far more than just establish a literary genre in “science fiction;” these “scientific romances” (along with several short stories) were actually the works that launched his career in the mid 1890’s. During his time he was recognized as one of the world's most distinguished men of letters and devoted advocate for social reform.
