Genre: Fiction

This book contains eight short stories written by H. G. Wells. A wonderful mixture of science fiction and fantasy, “The Door in the Wall, and Other Stories” constitutes a fantastic introduction to Wells' work and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. The stories include: “A Door in The Wall”, “The Star”, “A Dream of Armageddon”, “The Cone”, “A Moonlight Fable”, “The Diamond Maker”, “The Lord of The Dynamos”, and “The Country of The Blind”. 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. First published in 1911.

One confidential evening, not three months ago, Lionel Wallace told me this story of the Door in the Wall. And at the time I thought that so far as he was concerned it was a true story. He told it me with such a direct simplicity of conviction that I could not do otherwise than believe in him. But in the morning, in my own flat, I woke to a different atmosphere, and as I lay in bed and recalled the things he had told me, stripped of the glamour of his earnest slow voice, denuded of the focussed shaded table light, the shadowy atmosphere that wrapped about him and the pleasant bright things, the dessert and glasses and napery of the dinner we had shared, making them for the time a bright little world quite cut off from every-day realities, I saw it all as frankly incredible. "He was mystifying!" I said, and then: "How well he did it!. . . . . It isn't quite the thing I should have expected him, of all people, to do well." Afterwards, as I sat up in bed and sipped my morning tea, I found myself trying to account for the flavour of reality that perplexed me in his impossible reminiscences, by supposing they did in some way suggest, present, convey—I hardly know which word to use—experiences it was otherwise impossible to tell. Well, I don't resort to that explanation now. I have got over my intervening doubts. I believe now, as I believed at the moment of telling, that Wallace did to the very best of his ability strip the truth of his secret for me. But whether he himself saw, or only thought he saw, whether he himself was the possessor of an inestimable privilege, or the victim of a fantastic dream, I cannot pretend to guess. Even the facts of his death, which ended my doubts forever, throw no light on that. That much the reader must judge for himself....

The Door in the Wall is a short story by H. G. Wells. Herbert George "H. G." Wells was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing textbooks and rules for war games. Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction," as are Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback. His most notable science fiction works include The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. Wells's earliest specialised training was in biology, and his thinking on ethical matters took place in a specifically and fundamentally Darwinian context. He was also from an early date an outspoken socialist, often sympathising with pacifist views. His later works became increasingly political and didactic, and he sometimes indicated on official documents that his profession was that of "Journalist." Most of his later novels were not science fiction. Some described lower-middle class life, leading him to be touted as a worthy successor to Charles Dickens, but Wells described a range of social strata and even attempted, in Tono-Bungay, a diagnosis of English society as a whole. Wells's first non-fiction bestseller was Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress Upon Human Life and Thought.

Genre: Fiction

Meisterliche Erzählungen von Englands größter Schriftstellerin Ein Unfall mit tödlichem Ausgang. Ein geheimnisvolles Satzzeichen. Ein aufdringlicher Besucher. Ein plötzlicher Herzstillstand. Es sind die unterschiedlichsten Dinge und Ereignisse, die Hilary Mantels Figuren aus der Lebensbahn werfen – mal für kurze Zeit, mal für immer. Gemein ist ihnen, dass sie tief ins Fleisch des Daseins schneiden. Mit einem untrüglichen Gespür für die Balance zwischen subtiler Andeutung und zielsicher gesetzten Schockeffekten entlarvt »die größte englische Schriftstellerin« (so die Jury des Booker-Preises) die Abgründe, über denen das Leben wie ein dünner Teppich liegt. Diese hintersinnigen, pointiert und mit lakonischem Humor erzählten Storys sind der Beweis, dass die Großmeisterin des üppigen historischen Romans in der kurzen Form – und im Hier und Jetzt – nicht weniger heimisch ist. Mit einer bisher unveröffentlichten Erzählung
