The Island of Doctor Moreau, by Wells, H. G. - Akasha Classics, AkashaPublishing.Com - Join H.G. Wells for a spine-tingling classic of science fiction. When Edward Prendick is shipwrecked in the South Pacific, he is picked up by a ship loaded with animals and bound for a strange island. Once there Prendick finds himself under the power of Dr. Moreau, who has turned the island into a haven where he can indulge in dark experiments. As he discovers the horrors which Dr. Moreau has created, Prendick finds that his own life is now at stake. Criticized as blasphemous when it was first published in 1896, The Island of Dr. Moreau prefigures modern issues surrounding genetic engineering and the ethical problems of technology.

Herbert George Wells, better known as H. G. Wells, was an English writer best known for such science fiction novels as The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. He was a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction, and produced works in many different genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. He was also an outspoken socialist. His later works become increasingly political and didactic, and only his early science fiction novels are widely read today. Wells, along with Hugo Gernsback and Jules Verne, is sometimes referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction".
