"The World Set Free" is a novel by H. G. Wells, written in 1913 and first published in 1914. The plot concerns the advent and use of terrible and immensely-powerful nuclear weapons the likes of which the world has never seen before, exploring the idea of technological advance as a means of human progress. A fascinating and prophetic novel, "The World Set Free" is highly recommended for fans of vintage speculative fiction. 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.
