Synopsis for Original Title

The Shape of Things to Come is one of the great classics of science fiction. Spanning the years from 1929 to 2105, it describes future generations and predicts the advent of wars, advancing technology and sweeping cultural changes. Originally written in 1929, this masterly work of science fiction has already confirmed H G Wells' status as a remarkable soothsayer, and provides glimpses of what is perhaps yet to come.
