About the Author:

Often called the father of science fiction, British author Herbert George (H. G.) Wells literary works are notable for being some of the first titles of the science fiction genre, and include such famed titles as The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Invisible Man. Despite being fixedly associated with science fiction, Wells wrote extensively in other genres and on many subjects, including history, society and politics, and was heavily influenced by Darwinism. His first book, Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress Upon Human Life and Thought, offered predictions about what technology and society would look like in the year 2000, many of which have proven accurate. Wells went on to pen over fifty novels, numerous non-fiction books, and dozens of short stories. His legacy has had an overwhelming influence on science fiction, popular culture, and even on technological and scientific innovation. Wells died in 1946 at the age of 79.

Review:

"The Wheels of Chance is both an early cycling classic and a picture of an era. In this long-overdue scholarly edition, Jeremy Withers provides an illuminating introduction to Wells's lively comedy." - Professor Patrick Parrinder, President, H. G. Wells Society "Wellss engaging comic novel becomes even more enjoyable in this welcome new edition of The Wheels of Chance. Jeremy Withers scholarly introduction and notes set the novel thoughtfully into the context of the authors life and times, with particular reference to the bicycle boom of the 1890s, presenting readers with a host of insights that are bound to enhance appreciation of the book." -Michael Sherborne, author of the biography H. G. Wells: Another Kind of Life
