The Country of the Blind and Other Stories
A collection of thirty-three fantasy and science fiction short stories. H.G. Wells described the journeys into his remarkable imagination which resulted in ‘The Country of the Blind and Other Stories’. They range from the light-hearted comic tales such as ‘The Obliterated Man’ to the breath taking Masterpieces of science fiction like ‘The Star.’ A new introduction and notes, especially written for this addition, ensures maximum understanding and enjoyment for the modern reader.
In his introduction to this book, Wells wrote that this collection covers ‘all the short stories by me that I care for any one to read again.’ He went on to say that except for the two sets of linked stories ‘A Story of the Stone Age’ & ‘A Story of the Days To Come’ in his earlier collection, Tales of Space & Time (1899), ‘no short story of mine of the slightest merit is excluded from this volume.’
