On a freezing February day, a stranger emerges from out of the gray to request a room at a local provincial inn. Who is this out-of-season traveler? More confounding is the thick mask of bandages obscuring his face. Why does he disguise himself in this manner and keep himself hidden away in his room? Aroused by trepidation and curiosity, the local villagers bring it upon themselves to find the answers. What they discover is a man trapped in a terror of his own creation and a chilling reflection of the unsolvable mysteries of their own souls. In the tradition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein comes another undisputed classic of science fiction and horror to stir the imagination and conscience. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest science fiction horror stories ever written.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I personally consider the greatest of English living writers [to be] H. G. Wells.” Upton Sinclair
“A harrowing read from cover to cover, The Invisible Man is perfect for the audio format.” Audiofile
“The psychological rigor that Wells brings to the novel makes The Invisible Man quite possibly the first and last straight science fiction story worthy of our attentions.” SFFaudio

Author

Author Bio: H. G. Wells

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
