Publisher's Summary

Although he is best known for his speculative novels, H.G. Wells also wrote engaging works of short fiction, most dealing with the strange, the unsettling, and the unknown. In this performance, Ralph Cosham brings 4 of Wells's stories to vivid life. "The Cone" is a shocking tale of revenge, "The Diamond Maker" tells of a fortune that might have been, "The Country of the Blind" tells of a man with sight who tries unsuccessfully to be king in a valley where everyone is blind, and the haunting classic "The Door in the Wall" captures the pathos of lost youth.

(P) and ©1993 Commuter's Library

What the Critics Say

"Whatever his message, the 'Red-Headed Stranger' conveys his thoughts in the same friendly, endearing manner that has made his songs part of the fabric of American life." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Avoid this"

    Don't read unless you like horrible explicit descriptions of people being cremated alive, etc. This is hack stuff for pulp magazines of the day. If you want the real Wells, read the Invisible Man, the Time Machine, the Outline of History--anything but this.
