Abstract:

H.G. Wells continues to be widely read as the father of science fiction, a major novelist, and the author of some of the finest short stories in the English language. As the author of The Outline of History, A Short History of the World and The Science of Life, he was also a popular educator and man of ideas who influenced generations of readers. Because he was deeply involved with the literary, social and political issues of his time, a chronology of his life is in a sense a history of ideas in the twentieth century. This chronology will be of service to the student, scholar and general reader who wishes to check a point quickly without referring to the detailed narratives offered by the standard biographies. Every effort has been made to ensure a high standard of accuracy, and the findings of recent scholarship have been embodied. There is a full index of persons, places and works referred to. To browse through this Chronology is to follow in the footsteps of a man who led an incredibly active life and spanned the transition from the break-up of the Victorian age to the shadow of nuclear warfare. J.R. Hammond offers a definitive chronology of Wells that provides a fascinating insight into the background, life and times of a major literary figure.
