Contained within this volume is a collection of writings by George Boon, painstakingly selected and edited by H. G. Wells for inclusion in The Times newspaper. Chapters include: “The Back Of Miss Bathwick And George Boon”, “Being The First Chapter Of 'The Mind Of The Race'”, “The Great Slump, The Revival Of Letters, And The Garden By The Sea”, “Of Art, Of Literature, Of Mr Henry James”, “Of The Assembling And Opening Of The World Conference On The Mind Of The Race”, “Of Not Liking Hallery And The Royal Society For The Discouragement Of Literature”, et cetera. 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.
