Herbert George Wells is perhaps most well known today for his science-fiction novels but it was "The Outline of History" that initiated a new era of popular history. Although the harshest critics were from those who disagreed on ideological grounds, it's difficult to dismiss the depth of Wells' insights and prophetic accuracy. E.M. Forster and Beatrice Webb both praised the book on publication. It was this very book to which G.K. Chesterton responds in "The Everlasting Man" as does Hilaire Bellock in "A Companion to Mr. Wells's "Outline of History." "In re-living the entire life of Mankind as a single imaginative experience, Mr. Wells was achieving something which they themselves would hardly have dared to attempt ... In fact, the purpose and value of Mr. Wells's book seem to have been better appreciated by the general public than by the professional historians of the day

"A successful author and liberal MP with a loving and benevolent wife, Richard Remington appears to be a man to envy. But underneath his superficial contentment, he is far from happy with either his marriage or the politics of his party. The New Machiavelli describes the disarray into which his life is thrown when he meets the young and beautiful Isabel Rivers and becomes tormented by desire. At first, he struggles to resist and remain focused upon his familiar political, personal, and social life. But, as he soon learns, it is harder than he could have imagined to turn his back on love. Based on Wells's own experiences, this is a vivid and unfailingly candid account of the damage wrought by a scandalous society affair and the overwhelming power of passion."--Back cover

117 editions published between 1825 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it came to holy matrimony, writer H.G. Wells had a rather interesting personal history. He married his first cousin, soon left her for one of his students, and then had multiple affairs (and children) with important female thinkers and writers over the course of the rest of his lifetime. With that in mind, Wells brings a unique twist to this relatively straightforward take on Edwardian morals and mores in marriage
The secret places of the heart by H. G Wells( Book )

73 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H.G. Wells is best remembered as a central figure in the development of the science fiction genre and as the creator of such works as The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The War of the Worlds. However, much of his literary output was more conventional in nature, and he published a number of novels dealing with interpersonal relationships and social themes. Many critics regard The Secret Places of the Heart as a heavily autobiographical account of one of Wells' failed love affairs

Although H. G. Wells is best known for his science fiction stories he wrote in many genres including history, and social commentaries. The Wheels of Chance was written when the bicycle was beginning to become very popular (1890 -1905) and saw bicycles becoming a part of social changes in England. People could move quickly and rigid class structure was beginning to crumble. This is the story of a down-on-his-luck draper's assistant who takes a second-hand bicycle on a tour through the English countryside. He meets a young woman on the run from her seducer in addition to a string of other amusing characters
