Paperblanks Special Editions H.G. Wells 75th Anniversary Midi 5x7 Inch Journal

As a celebration of his life and legacy, on the 75th anniversary of his death, we are honored to bring H.G. Wells’ handwritten manuscript of The Time Machine to our Paperblanks collection. A prolific writer of many genres, Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) wasn't just a science fiction pioneer, but a futurist whose ideas for our future have had a great impact on the modern world.  He began his writing career with short humor articles before publishing his first novel, The Time Machine, in 1895. The book was instantly a massive success and defined his place as a leading science fiction writer of his day. Today, the novel remains widely read and is credited with popularizing the concept of time travel and coining the “time machine” term.

After The Time Machine, Wells quickly turned out other classics of the genre, including The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897) and The War of the Worlds (1898). He took on a more political and didactic bent with his later writing, publishing The Outline of History – his social views on human history – in 1920. True to his futurist self, he also explored new media for his storytelling, including Hollywood films and the famous Orson Welles radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds that was just a little too realistic for listeners.

On the cover is his handwritten The Time Machine manuscript, currently in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Illinois.
