Forthcoming from Broadview Press in spring 2018, a new critical edition of H.G. Wells's The Invisible Man edited by Nicole Lobdell (DePauw University) and Nancee Reeves (University of Georgia). An unsettling novel, The Invisible Man reveals the prejudices, politics, and aspirations of the late nineteenth century. It hones our understanding of Wells's later works, both his rollicking scientific romances and the eugenic 'utopias' that Wells wrote in his later years. This new edition brings to the forefront the cultural contexts and scientific discoveries that inspired Wells's novel. Appendices include, among others, "The Four Endings of The Invisible Man," "Invisibility in Nineteenth-Century Fiction," "Biological Context," and "Technology Context: Röntgen Rays and Radio Waves."
