Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was a British author often called "The Father of Science Fiction." Even before the 20th century began, his fiction and articles explored invisibility, interstellar travel, time travel, and genetic experimentation. His novel, The War of the Worlds was serialized in the American magazine Cosmopolitan, and later turned into a famous radio drama by Orson Wells.
