Inhaltsangabe: IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET is a provocative, insightful, often humorous and finally scandalous look at the transformation of the world into something like a wonderland -- a comet dusts the earth in a near-miss, and its substance people everywhere: jealousy and possessive behaviors of men and women become passions for cooperation and peace. Sounds idyllic enough -- but contemporary readers were aghast at the suggestion that religion, marriage, and capitalism, could be replaced by a primitivistic urge to help, share, and love. IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET is a book that's been unkindly overlooked, lost in the dusty classics section of our libraries. THE TIME MACHINE has frequently been described as the best novella ever written for its blend of humanist philosophy and visionary science. IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET might be described as a fuller working of the same themes, expanded in a memorably liberal love story.

Über den Autor: Born Herbert George Wells in Kent in 1866, H. G. Wells was an outspoken socialist and pacifist, whose works caused some controversy. He is more widely known as a science fiction writer for the novels that he published between 1895 and 1901: The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, When the Sleeper Wakes and The First Men in the Moon. All, except for When the Sleeper Wakes, have been made into films.Along with Jules Verne, H. G. Wells is also known as 'the Father of Science Fiction'. His later novels were more realistic and he wrote many genres, including contemporary novels, history and social commentary. H. G. Wells died in 1946.
