This book contains H. G. Wells' 1932 short story, "The Queer Story of Brownlow's Newspaper". On the 10th November 1931 Brownlow receives his daily newspaper like any other day-however, unlike any other day, the newspaper contains full colour images and is dated forty years in the future. The story is primarily a description of the information contained within the news paper and is a vessel for a number of accurate prophecies, including a diminished birth rate, the existence of geothermal energy, and a wider presentation of scientific news. 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.
