Author; his science-based futuristic novels, such as The Time Machine (1895) and The Shape of Things to Come (1933) gained a retrospective glamour for predicting air warfare and the atomic bomb; other works include socialist pamphlets, educational tracts and loosely autobiographical novels like The History of Mr Polly (1910).
