Sci-Fi 19th Century-Style

hgwells_coverTune in this weekend for some turn-of-the-century sci-fi. We’re going back to the classics with a few selections from H.G. Wells. Jonathan Kiel picked out some good ones: “In the Abyss” and “The Flowering of the Strange Orchid.”

It’s impressive how Wells takes the ordinary things that surround us and turns them into tense terrifying mysteries. The tales are strange unwinding oddities filled with fantastic creatures and wondrous places. It takes me back to the roots of good ol’ campfire storytelling.
