Herbert George Wells (September 21, 1866 – August 13, 1946), better known as H. G.

H. G. Wells in 1943. ...


His fiction falls into three main categories, each with a very different style and tone.


His Xeelee Sequence stories are set in the far future, where humans are rising to become the second most powerful race in the universe, next to the god-like Xeelee. Character development in these stories takes second place to the depiction of advanced theories and ideas, such as the true nature of the Great Attractor, naked singularities and the great battle between Baryonic and Dark matter lifeforms. Examples of novels written in this style: Ring, Timelike Infinity. The Xeelee Sequence is a series of novels and short stories by British science fiction author Stephen Baxter. ...

His present-day Earth stories are much more human, with characters portrayed with greater depth and care. They typically indulge in "if only" whimsy or outright alternate history, dreaming about what humanity could achieve in the exploration of space. NASA features prominently, and a great deal of research has obviously been done into its internal structuring and methods.

His "Evolution" stories are a later development and show an increasing interest in the evolution of humanity.
