W is for WELLS, as in H.G

PULP FICTION late 1800s – mid 1950s

Herbert George Wells (1866 –1946) —aka H. G. Wells — was a prolific English writer in many genres. Wells is best known for his science fiction novels and is called the father of science fiction, along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback.

Wells wrote over fifty novels, his most notable being science fiction novels:  The Time Machine (1895). The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896). The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times.  

Wells also wrote over eighty short stories with many appearing in pulp magazines such as Amazing Stories. 

Though married, Wells had affairs (with the consent of his wife) with a number of women, including the American birth control activist Margaret Sanger, also adventurer and writer, Odette Keun, Ukranian spy, Moura Budberg, and others. 

Of himselfWells wrote: "I was never a great amorist, though I have loved several people very deeply."

Think how many writers he's influenced. And amazing how many of his stories became movies, sometimes many movies.

So ahead of his time. I still like some of his stories. And I find it interesting where some of his stuff overlaps HP Lovecraft--they were writing at the same time and I sort of wonder if the aliens under the earth were part of the ethos at the time--two separate people thinking of the same idea individually, because execution is so different.

I love hearing that he was so prolific with short stories. Interesting about the affairs. I hope you had a great time with your grandkids last month!

I love his influence! So, many movies and likely they will redo them again~ He was so, talented~ It makes you wonder about his life-even more!

I've heard good things about his books. Something tells me that his wife must have a lot of stories to tell too. I wonder if she wrote?
