"In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." Or is he? In H. G. Wells' acclaimed tale, a stranded mountaineer encounters an isolated society in which his apparent advantage proves less than valuable. This thought-provoking fable is accompanied by other short stories, including "The Star," a gripping tale about a massive celestial object hurtling toward the Earth, as well as "The New Accelerator," "The Remarkable Case of Davidson's Eyes," "Under the Knife," and "The Queer Story of Brownlow's Newspaper." With the 1895 publication of his first novel, The Time Machine, Wells established himself as the foremost science-fiction writer of his era. This entertaining collection was selected and edited by Martin Gardner, who also provides an Afterword that offers insight into the liveliness and originality of Wells’ imagination.

A NEW YORK TIMES EDITOR'S CHOICE Sixty years after the publication of his first novel, Cat Man, Edward Hogland is publishing his twenty-fifth book at the age of eighty-three. This capstone novel, set in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, introduces Press, a stockbroker going blind. Press has lost his job and his wife and is trying to figure out his next move, holed up in his Vermont cabin surrounded by a hippy commune, drug runners, farmers-gone-bust, blood-thirsty auctioneers, and general ne’er-do-wells. Solace and purpose come from the unlikeliest sources as he learns to navigate his new landscape without sight. Hoagland, himself, is going blind, and through this evocative, unsentimental novel, we experience the world closing in around Press, the rising panic of uncertainty, the isolation of exile, the increasing dependence upon the kindness of strangers, and a whole new appreciation of the world just beyond sight. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.

Herbert George Wells was perhaps best known as the author of such classic works of science fiction as The Time Machine and War of the Worlds. But it was in his short stories, written when he was a young man embarking on a literary career, that he first explored the enormous potential of the scientific discoveries of the day. He described his stories as "a miscellany of inventions," yet his enthusiasm for science was tempered by an awareness of its horrifying destructive powers and the threat it could pose to the human race. A consummate storyteller, he made fantastic creatures and machines entirely believable; and, by placing ordinary men and women in extraordinary situations, he explored, with humor, what it means to be alive in a century of rapid scientific progress.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Although best known for his novels, it was in his early short fiction that H. G. Wells first explored the relationship between the fantastical and everyday. Here horror meets humor, man-eating squids invade the sleepy Devon coast, and strange kinks and portals in space and time lead to other worlds-a marvelous literary universe showcasing the author's fascination with the wonders and perils of scientific progress. In his introduction, 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 and A Story of the Days To Come in his earlier collection, Tales of Space & Time, "no short story of mine of the slightest merit is excluded from this volume."

In the nineteenth century, a small group of American idealists managed to actually build Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine and use it to develop Cliology, mathematical models that could chart the likely course of the future. Soon they were working to alter history's course as they thought best. By our own time, the Society has become the secret master of the world. But no secret can be kept forever, at least not without drastic measures. When her plans for some historic real estate lead developer and ex-reporter Sarah Beaumont to stumble across the Society's existence, it's just the first step into a baffling and deadly maze of conspiracies. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

"A dead body is a lousy way to end a first date."So begins In the Country of the Blind, a modern noir tale that takes readers into the world of former attorney turned building superintendent Zach Brandis. When Zach abandoned his legal career, he confused everyone, including himself. Now, with no apparent purpose in life, he has enough time to get into some very hot water.The night Zach takes Cynthia Hull to dinner, murder and a confrontation with the cops are the last things on his mind. But walking her home, he finds himself face to face with New York's finest, investigating the suspicious death of the actress's roommate and friend, Alex Penworth. Maybe it's because Cynthia is beautiful and vulnerable, or maybe it's just that the cops rub him the wrong way, but Zach steps in to shield her from their persistent questions. Over the next few days, Zach finds himself increasingly tied up in knots over the case, and what starts as simple curiosity may end up putting him in grave danger. Captivated, Zach begins to look into Alex's mysterious activities in the weeks before his death. When Cynthia's apartment is ransacked, it becomes clear that Alex was hiding something, something of value to someone. As Zach plays with the puzzle pieces, more questions begin to emerge: Why was Alex fired from his job at a trendy bar? Why is a beautiful undercover narc hanging around it and trying to keep Zach away? Why don't the cops seem interested in the inconsistencies in Alex's autopsy? As Zach puts the pieces in place, a picture of Alex begins to emerge: another lost soul, plagued by his past and the demons of a cult he managed to escape--a man who, like Zach, abandoned a promising career to struggle in a dead-end job. Driven as he is by a feeling of kinship with the victim, can Zach discover what ultimately led to Alex's death and still get himself out of harm's way before it's too late?
