    Love and Mr. Lewisham (subtitled The Story of a Very Young Couple) is a 1900 novel set in the 1880s by H. G. Wells. It was among his first fictional writings outside the science fiction genre. Wells took considerable pains over the manuscript and said that "the writing was an altogether more serious undertaking than I have ever done before." He later included it in a 1933 anthology, Stories of Men and Women in Love.

    H. G. Wells è considerato insieme a Verne uno dei padri del romanzo scientifico e precursore della fantascienza, riuscendo a fondere la scienza con un immaginario verosimile, al punto che descrisse con dieci anni di anticipo la bomba atomica. In ogni suo libro è contenuto un insegnamento morale, in particolare l'esortazione alla prudenza nelle scoperte scientifiche, perché non mettano in moto forze e conseguenze incontrollabili.

    The Wonderful Visit is an 1895 novel by H. G. Wells. With an angel - a creature of fantasy unlike a religious angel - as protagonist, and taking place in contemporary England, the book could be classified as contemporary fantasy, although the genre was not recognized in Wells' time. The Wonderful Visit also has strong satirical themes, gently mocking customs and institutions of Victorian England as well as idealistic rebellion itself.

    For more than a hundred years, science-fiction writers around the world have captured our imaginations with speculations about journeys into the past or future. Countless novels, short stories, movies, and TV shows have used or adapted the theme of time travel. However, all of them owe a debt to Herbert George Wells. This, his first major novel, published in 1895, was the origin of the very concept of time travel. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest science-fiction novels of all time.

    "Temo di non riuscire a descrivervi le singolari sensazioni che si hanno viaggiando nel tempo: sono eccessivamente spiacevoli. Sembra di essere sulle montagne russe: si ha cioè la sensazione di precipitare inevitabilmente con la testa all'ingiù! Provavo, inoltre, l'orribile presentimento di una imminente catastrofe."

    Londres, les Martiens débarquent. Afin de préserver leur espèce, ils envahissent la Terre et sèment terreur et désolation. Le roman décrit l'aventure du point de vue d'un seul personnage qui seul (ou presque) tente de rejoindre sa femme. Le roman est très bien mené et le parti pris de ne décrire qu'un point de vue ponctuel est réellement intéressant. La multiplicité des détails et des anecdotes renforcent l'angoisse du lecteur.

    Famoso romanzo di fantascienza pubblicato nel 1895, eccezionale per la sua anticipazione delle tematiche spazio-tempo alla base di così tanti romanzi e film. Il romanzo è anche uno spunto per riflessioni filosofiche da parte dell'autore, che guarda con preoccupazione la disumanizzazione dovuta al progresso tecnologico.
