Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is “The Invisible Man” by sci-fi master author, H. G. Wells. He came to the Coach and Horses Inn located in Iping, a small village in West Sussex. And there was something exceedingly peculiar about him. With his goggle-covered eyes and his bandage-wrapped face, he stayed in his room, kept the door locked, and surrounded himself with countless bottles filled with various chemicals and mysterious solutions. But when strange things began to happen, the citizens of Iping were soon witness to a series of fantastic events the likes of which could only have been created by the deranged mind of a truly mad scientist. “The Invisible Man” blends the elements of science fiction and horror into a brilliant tale that is both thought-provoking and chilling. It is one of Wells’ many literary masterpieces and its timeless appeal makes it a must-read for the speculative fiction lovers of all eras. The second novel is another Wells classic, “The Island of Dr. Moreau.” Shipwrecked, Charles Edward Prendick finds himself adrift on the open sea. His lifeboat is soon sighted, though, by a passing ship. The man responsible for his rescue is named Montgomery, who has a strange, deformed servant in tow. Montgomery is the colleague of Dr. Moreau, an eccentric research scientist whose island they are steaming toward. Before long, Prendick discovers his rescue ship is filled with animals—animals of all kinds, all of which are scheduled for delivery to Moreau’s island. When the island is reached, Prendick finds himself an unexpected guest. There he discovers a scientific nightmare concocted by the maddest scientist ever created in literature. For Moreau’s island is inhabited by horrifying creatures of his own creation. Creatures that are not men, yet not beasts. It is a nightmare from which escape seems almost impossible…
