    1. I classified this biography as literary because of the subject, H. G.

That having been said this was an entertaining read, primarily due to the achievements of Wells.

    4. Reading this as vague background research for my diss. What I have learned is that I'd probably have never gotten half this gossip if I'd read just the academic sources, whee!
