From the Science Channel:
"I told you so..." H.G. Wells' self-penned epitaph underscores a lifetime of grim, yet uncanny prophecy. With stories like The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells established himself as a sci-fi writer of almost clairvoyant talent. But Wells' tales of hi-tech adventure belie an ominous vision of the future.
Beneath the technological wonder of 1895's The Time Machine, Wells attacks the growing class disparity in his native Britain … through a dystopian future where the ruling class literally eat their inferiors.
In 1898's Martian invasion epic, The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells makes a ghastly--and accurate--prediction that soon becomes a staple of the modern battlefield: deadly biological weapons.
In 1914's The World Set Free, scientists uncover a revolutionary power source, propelling mankind into a new age of prosperity and technological progress. But this same energy is soon turned to warfare, with next-level weapons that unleash unprecedented horrors on humanity. In this tale, H.G. Wells accurately prophesizes the advent of the atomic bomb.
H.G. Wells' frighteningly accurate predictions hold a grave warning: beware the dark side of progress. Our greatest innovations could very well become the tools of our own destruction.
