What to expect

On a freezing February day, a stranger emerges from out of the gray to request a room at a local provincial inn. Who is this out-of-season traveler? More confounding is the thick mask of bandages obscuring his face. Why does he disguise himself in this manner and keep himself hidden away in his room?

Aroused by trepidation and curiosity, the local villagers bring it upon themselves to find the answers. What they discover is a man trapped in a terror of his own creation and a chilling reflection of the unsolvable mysteries of their own souls.

In the tradition of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein comes another undisputed classic of science fiction and horror to stir the imagination and conscience. It isconsidered by many to be one of the greatest science fiction horror stories ever written.

“I personally consider the greatest of English living writers [to be] H. G. Wells.”

“The psychological rigor that Wells brings to the novel makes The Invisible Man quite possibly the first and last straight science fiction story worthy of our attentions.”
