This volume contains a collection of 55 newspaper columns written by H. G. Wells between 1923 and 1924. Following the immense success Wells' "The Outline of History", people wanted to hear more of his commentary, especially on contemporary events. As such, Wells began writing popular columns for the Westminster Gazette, the New York Times, and the Daily Express. This volume is highly recommended for fans of Wells' writing and those with an interest in early-twentieth-century history. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre, thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1924.
