“World Brain” is an article written by H. G. Wells and first contributed to the new “Encyclopédie Française” in 1937. It explores the idea of a “permanent world encyclopaedia” that would contain “the whole human memory” and that would be “a world synthesis of bibliography and documentation with the indexed archives of the world.” Fascinating and arguably prophetic reading, “World Brain” will appeal to fan Wells' work. 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). "The Father of Science Fiction" was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. 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.
