Herbert George Wells (1866-1946), better known as H.G. Wells, was an English author who is considered one of the fathers of science fiction. However, his bibliography ranges far past the outer reaches of science fiction. He wrote fiction books in many different genres as well as non-fiction books such as textbooks, historical books, political books and much more.

Some of the most well known of H.G. Wells’ published fictional work include novels such as The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The Island of Doctor Moreau and The War of the Worlds – all of which are considered classic novels to say the least. Below is the order in which H.G. Wells’ fictional novels were published:
