In one of the earliest works of science fiction, H. G. Wells brings to life the joys of space travel and humanity's boundless curiosity.
When penniless businessman Mr Bedford moves to Kent in the hopes of writing a play, he meets mad scientist Mr Cavor who is developing an anti-gravity metal. One man seeking his fortune and the other scientific discovery, this unlikely pair journey to the moon using Mr Cavor's new invention. But what creatures lurk beneath its cratered surface?
The First Men in the Moon is a swashbuckling adventure about the discovery of extra-terrestrial life. However, undercutting this action is a poignant exploration of ethics in the face of scientific progress. Wells is a master science fiction writer and his works have influenced the genre for more than a century.
