Summary

A brand new collection of eight short stories by the master of supernatural suspense and thrillers, exploring science fiction and fantasy themes. The conflict between science and imagination is the major theme of the first story "The Door in the Wall", which was enormously popular when it first appeared. Today Wells's reputation rests almost entirely upon his science fiction novels, which include The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898), all of which are acknowledged classics of the science fiction genre and continue to be adapted into other media. "The Door in the Wall" is considered by critics to be Wells's finest short story. Included in this collection are: ''The Door in the Wall'', ''The Star'', ''The Crystal Egg'', ''The Cone'', ''A Moonlight Fable'', ''The Diamond Maker'', ''The Lord of the Dynamos'', ''The Country of the Blind'', and ''A Vision of Judgement''.

Two Great Stories

I loved the two longest stories in this book, “The Door In The Wall” and “The Country Of The Blind”. Most of the others felt a bit underdeveloped or repetitive, but the lively narration redeemed them a little.

Great classic read! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this. It took me a few times to get through (had to take breaks for the granddaughter), but worth it.
