Herbert George Wells was born on 21 September, 1866, and died on 13 August, 1946. Writing under the name H.G. Wells, he is often regarded as one of the most popular and influential novelists of all time and his books including The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man are classics.
He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times and is the co-founder of The Diabetic Association (now Diabetes UK). His later work was more focused on satire and social criticism. He studied biology and worked as a science teacher before publishing The Time Machine in 1895.
