"Kipps", also known as "The Remarkable Mr. Kipps", is a novel by H. G. Wells. It marks a turning point for the author, moving away from the futuristic science fiction for which he is famed and onto more down-to-earth accounts of twentieth-century British society. Within it, Wells clearly draws from his own knowledge of Britain's social structure to present an interesting autobiographical tale. Contents include: "The Little Shop at New Romney", "The Emporium", "The Woodcarving Class", "Chitterlow", "'Swapped!'", "The Unexpected", "The Walshinghams", "Engaged", "The Bicycle Manufacturer", "The Pupil Lover", "Discords", "London", "Kipps Enters Society", "The Labyrinthodon", 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). 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.
