    okładka Niedoświadczony duch, Audiobook | Herbert George Wells

    Podobnie jak w przypadku „Skradzionego ciała”, „Niedoświadczony duch” (być może najbardziej znana opowieść o duchach Wellsa po „Czerwonym pokoju” - nie bez powodu, ponieważ jest to arcydzieło fikcji spekulacyjnej) ma na celu ostrzeżenie przed antropocentryczną pychą. Ludzie zanurzają się w morzach, docierają do nieba, nurzają się w ziemi, przeczesują lasy i przedzierają się przez śniegi, chętni i pewni perspektyw odkrycia. Sięgają także do niematerialnego eteru, aby skomuniko...

    „You Can’t be Too Careful” is a sketch of one way of life – the life path, cowardly man, in fear, made a lot of dirty tricks. He never forgot that „necessary caution”, and helped unleash the Second world war. He believed everything he was told, he did what he was told. Not it is done by world Affairs, he was only a humble and law-abiding. But he relied all those who would, in the words of wells, „to increase the amount of the world’s evil”. He was one of the men who develop...

    okładka The Secret Places of the Heart, Ebook | Herbert George Wells

    H.G. Wells is best remembered as a central figure in the development of the science fiction genre. However, much of his literary output was more conventional in nature, and he published a number of novels dealing with interpersonal relationships and social themes. H.G. Wells was so charmed by Margaret Sanger that he based „The Secret Places of the Heart” on his time with her. The novel is a thinly-veiled autobiography that depicts an English gentleman, Sir Richard Hardy, wh...
