Publisher's Summary

The first Spoken Ink collection of 15 superb short stories by H. G. Wells, who was a master of the form. Humour and wit abound in his writing, as does sharp social observation. A scientist shows an unusually interested stranger a deadly cholera bacillus he is developing in The Stolen Bacillus, The owner of five ostriches being transported on a ship to Europe (one of which has swallowed a valuable diamond) holds an auction of four of them in A Deal in Ostriches. A scarred sailor tells his story of being cast away on a desert island with a miraculously preserved egg of the extinct giant Aepyornis bird, in Aepyornis Island. Then the egg hatches…
A hilarious story of a terrible and bitter feud between scientists in The Moth. These and many more brilliantly entertaining stories in this collection.
