The Food of the Gods
By H.G. Wells
Wells' story of scientific progress and unforseen consequences.
Two scientists develop a foodstuff that causes unparalleled growth in animals and humans. The results of their experimentation lead to chaos and unforseen consequences throughout the land.
THE FOOD OF THE GODS deals with many issues which are still present in science today and is a both witty and disturbing tale.
H.G. Wells was born in Bromley, Kent in 1866. After working as a draper's apprentice and pupil-teacher, he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in 1884, studying under T. H. Huxley. It was with THE TIME MACHINE (1895) that he had his real breakthrough. Today he is regarded as one of the all-time greatest authors of science fiction.
