The title of this collection refers to one of Wells’s best known short stories, “the country of the blind”, which is included in this book. The country of the blind and other Stories is a collection of thirty-three fantasy and Science fiction short stories written between 1894 and 1909, H. G. Wells, (born Sept. 21, 1866, Bromley, Kent, Eng-died Aug. 13, 1946, London), English novelist, journalist, sociologist, and historian. While studying science under T.H. Huxley in London, Wells formulated a romantic conception of the subject that would inspire the inventive and influential science-fiction and fantasy novels for which he is best known, including the epochal The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). He simultaneously took on a public role as an agitator for progressive causes, including the League of Nations. He later abandoned science fiction and drew on memories of his lower-middle-class early life in works including the novel Tono-Bungay (1908) and the comic The History of Mr. Polly (1910).
