British writer, historian, prognosticator, economist and novelist who was known for his sci-fi predictions of the future. After a sketchy education, he won a scholarship to Normal School of Science, then went on to graduate from London University with a BS in 1888. He taught biology and wrote educational articles, writing his first novel in 1895 and went on to write many other works. His work, "The War of the Worlds" which was read by Orson Wells, caused the famous Mars invasion panic of 1938. Wells also wrote "The Outline of History," 1920 and "The Shape of Things To Come," 1933, which was made into a movie. An enormously prolific and popular writer, Wells captured the early twentieth century's need to rebel and overthrow the oppressive Victorian conventions.
Wells married his first cousin, Isabel Mary Wells in 1891 and they divorced in 1894, followed by his second marriage to his student, Amy Robbins in 1895. Wells died on 13 August 1946 in London, England.
