A Slip Under The Microscope – another Little Black Classics, was still the only work of H.G. Wells I have read so far. Maybe, I should have read more, considering that I like science fiction a lot. The three stories that were included in the Sea Raiders, with deep-sea creatures taking it out on a small coastal town among other things, were quite okay but except for the last one about a magic shop, they didn’t leave much of an impression on me.
The Sea Raiders (Little Black Classics #84) – H.G. Wells
Rifftrax (the same guys who did the Mystery Science Theatre 3000) did a job on the movie version of the Magic Shop. It wasn’t pretty.
There should be a couple of big collections of Wells’ short stories if you want to dip your toes into his stuff without committing to full on novels.

I am not sure yet where I want to go with H.G Wells. The short stories I read so far where not great, so I don’t know if I want to go and read more of those, or rather would try something a little bit longer… I haven’t made my mind up yet…
