About the book:

The most dazzling of Wells' "scientific romances" and the last of the series that began with The Time Machine, this edition offers the only annotated version of The First Men in the Moon. Wells combines subtle comedy and thrilling adventure in this engaging satire of imperialism and human frailty in which the heroes invade the moon, only to be captured by the ant-like Selenites. Wells established a new level of the science fiction genre with his fantastical but subtle writing. The explanatory notes in this edition clarify Wells' rich allusions and elucidate the scientific aspects of the moon voyage.
