"Ugh-Lomi and Uya" is a short story by H. G. Wells set in 'a time beyond the memory of man, before the beginning of history... when one might have walked dryshod from France (as we call it now) to England." A thought-provoking parable concerning the dawn of man, "Ugh-Lomi and Uya" is not to be missed by fans of the short story form. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre, thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). "The Father of Science Fiction" was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
