A prolific English writer, H.G. Wells wrote in many genres including history, politics, social commentaries, textbooks, novels, and science fiction. In fact, his contribution to the genre of science fiction earned him the tag “The Father of Science Fiction.” A futurist, he wrote a number of utopian works and foresaw the advent of aircraft, tanks, space travel, nuclear weapons, satellite television, and something resembling the World Wide Web. The science fiction historian John Clute describes Wells as “the most important writer the genre has yet seen”, and notes his work has been central to both British and American science fiction. Despite all his achievements, Wells never won the Nobel Prize. He was nominated for it in 1921, 1932, 1935, and 1946.
