The weirdest thing kept happening as I read this. I kept thinking I was reading something by Ray Bradbury. It's so dreamy and just a touch off.I loved it, of course. This book is totally the brain-baby of Wells and Bradbury, somehow.

Every story in this collection shows why the work H.G. Wells has lasted this long. These stories show the wide range of his imagination telling tales of baried treasury, magic, other worlds, visons of the future, ghosts, and even a tale of love lost. All thirteen tales are excellently written in Wells' classic style. My personal favorites were 'The Magic Shop' and 'A Dream of Armageddon'
