This is H. G. Wells' 1910 dystopian novel, “The Sleeper Awakes”. A man sleeps for 200 years and wakes up in a transformed London to find that, due to the compound interest of his bank account, he is the richest man in the world. However, with his wildest dreams also come his gravest nightmares. A fantastic science fiction novel from the father of the genre, “The Sleeper Awakes” is highly recommended for those with a love of dystopian fiction and is not to be missed by fans of Wells' work. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). "The Father of Science Fiction" was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
