This audio-only collection brings together some of H.G. Wells's less rigorously scientific speculative fiction. There are ideas here that may have influenced the development of the fantasy and horror genres, as well as the more fanciful tendencies in science fiction. The narrators--Helen Lloyd reads one story, all the others read two--are uniformly strong despite being limited by the similarities of the stories. Several of them, for example, are mock scientific reports, and others fall into the pattern of one man telling another his experiences. The narrations maintain momentum and interest beyond these structural weaknesses, making this audiobook an entertaining listen. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
