Wells' Complete Short Stories reviewed. Wells made his name with The Time Machine . Many other notes about Wells are included in my reviews.
• When the Sleeper Wakes  (later rechristened 'When the Sleeper Awakes') is seeded from scientific doubts over what sleep is. His hero awakes after 203 years of sleep, not very plausibly as the inheritor of vast assets. (Wells includes compound interest as a theme; and some language change in English; and 1800s rather than 19th century). Another theme is opposition to black troops from Africa being used in Europe; he has no suggestion of black labour. [ Wells' novel is unfinished. It has an air battle with the hero using his plane in battering-ram mode. The main plot is a supposed leader of the people of London taking over from the capitalist Council, but turning bad. Wells had no idea about the Jewish promotion of fake 'revolutions': '... essentially an exaggeration of contemporary tendencies: higher buildings, bigger towns, wickeder capitalists and labour more down-trodden than ever and more desperate. ... more and more flying and the wildest financial speculation. ...' ]
• Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought [1900,1914] with interesting predictions (and long dull passages) has inspired fury in (for example) Richard Dawkins, who has a long and disgracefully mangled 'quotation' from it.
• The New Machiavelli  included pages of realism, such as this:
I, too, was curious. The story of the siege of the Legations in China in the year 1900 [Note: this is not the same series of events as the 1859 destruction of Yuanmingyuan] and all that followed upon that, is just one of those disturbing interludes in history that refuse to join on to that general scheme of protestation by which civilisation is maintained. It is a break in the general flow of experience as disconcerting to statecraft as the robbery of my knife and the scuffle that followed it had been to me when I was a boy at Penge. It is like a tear in a curtain revealing quite unexpected backgrounds. I had never given the business a thought for years; now this talk brought back a string of pictures to my mind; how the reliefs arrived and the plundering began, how section after section of the International Army was drawn into murder and pillage, how the infection spread upward until the wives of Ministers were busy looting, and the very sentinels stripped and crawled like snakes into the Palace they were set to guard. It did not stop at robbery, men were murdered, women, being plundered, were outraged, children were butchered, strong men had found themselves with arms in a lawless, defenceless city, and this had followed. Now it was all recalled. ...
• H G Wells in the First World War Wells was pro-war, and was made part of the 'Great War' propaganda team. He was not moderate: Joad later wrote something like It is only my respect for a great man which prevents me from quoting some of the things Wells wrote during the war. Wells was unimpressed by the behaviours of the British Monarchy, and the Church of England, and the British populace, during the war, which pushed him into addressing issues of world history. However, he never achieved much understanding of the hidden rôles of finance.
• A 'pogrom' – Extract from Jews in Russia before the coup ('Russian Revolution'), taken from The Research Magnificent 
• The Outline of History and comment on the plagiarism challenge by Florence Deek of Canada
• Russia in the Shadows Wells's account of Russia after the Jewish coup ('Russian Revolution') 
'Currency crank' Jewish slogan against critics of Jewish paper money [1926,1934]
'The Open Conspiracy' - H G Wells and the New World Order Text and detailed review of this important statement of World Organization by a Briton. 
• Wells' Outline of Life (large work on biology, a co-operative effort run by Wells) and Work, Wealth, and Happiness of Mankind (engaging big book of descriptive economics) ... may be added later!
• Jewish influence Wells never got to grips with such writers as Nesta Webster; Wells regarded her as staunchly Christian and avoided her other material. The article here includes the relevant quotations from Wells, plus my comments. [1939 and 1940]
• Crux Ansata full text of a wartime propaganda book mostly on Roman Catholic history, as detailed by Joseph McCabe. Not a good book, but interesting for its deflection from Jews, a common Jewish trick. 
• Mind at the End of its Tether  Wells' admission he couldn't understand the world at the time of the Second World War. He generalised this, wrongly, to the mental activity of the whole of mankind. (NB: nothing to do with supposed atom bombing. And nothing to do with Jewish media control).
• Wells' Outline of History came under attack by Florence Deeks (from Canada). An entirely unconvincing Roman Catholic attack By McKillop was published in 2000. (Wells plagiarist? is my shortened review on Amazon of the same review of McKillop on Florence Deeks).
• George Orwell (whose pen name may have been based on Wells's own name) wrote a newspaper piece 'Wells and the World State'
• Rudyard Kipling puzzled Wells. 'Mr Rudyard Kipling.. manifestly preaches a Mohammedan God, a modernised Allah with a taste for engineering..' (From First and Last Things). In his 'Experiment in Autobiography' Wells described Kipling as a contemporary with phases of greatness interleaved with grubbiness: Kipling's novel Stalky and Co left Wells with distaste at its bullying, which Wells regarded as the first sign of the degeneracy of any empire: in this case, the British Empire. There are similar passages in Kipling's poems, with such scenes as revenge massacres, Loot, and sex with native women. It strikes me that Kipling may have been paid more or less covertly by Jewish interests. Certainly, like Wells and Orwell, he was far away from serious awareness of Jews.
