H. G. Wells (1866-1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900-1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society. Ben Kingsley is a distinguished veteran of stage and screen. He won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his starring role in Ghandi, and has starred in other memorable films, such as Bugsy, Sneakers, and Schindler's List.
