Inside this Book – A short collection of eight stories by H.G. Wells. They’re all fairly likeable, although the focus on dreams and apocalypse can become a little repetitive. There were two that really stood out for me, though. The first was the title story, “The Door in the Wall”, which was quiet and restrained and not particularly original, but so wistful and sadly regretful in its tone that it became really rather appealing. The one unreservedly great story here, though, was “The Country of the Blind” (the early version, with the non-stupid ending – why did you mess with this piece of perfection, Mr. Wells? Why?). It works on those typical sci-fi tropes of conformity and individualism and oppression, the tension between utopian and dystopian societies, and it’s so subtle and so ambiguous in its original form that it rewards both a number of readings, and a number of different readings. It’s genuinely outstanding.
Inside this book –The Door in the Wall And Other Stories PDF Book by H G Wells – Who knew H.G. Wells wrote noir? He’s celebrated for The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine and other foundational works of what was to become Science Fiction, but these stories show a side of Wells I’d never encountered before. Still florid and descriptive, with the occasional section of occasional (and unfortunate) racism, these stories round out Wells as an author truly ahead of his time. “The Cone” would not be out of place as a the plot of a 1940’s film of jealousy and murder, though it was written nearly 50 years prior. There’s elements of fantasy in these stories, and the standard touches of Wellsian futurism and technology, but none of it so far-fetched that it affects its readability. A very pleasant surprise.
