A visionary precursor to the biopunk genre, The Island of Doctor Moreau explores the awful potential of biological experimentation. In one of H.G. Wells' most celebrated works, the shipwrecked Edward Prendick finds himself alone on an island with a mad scientist. Following the strange cries that echo through the forest, Prendick discovers that the island is inhabited by bizarre human-hybrid creatures that have been created by Doctor Moreau through terrible experiments. Prendick begins to suspect his own life is at risk. Raising questions about morality and the hubris of science, The Island of Doctor Moreau has fascinated readers for generations. This gorgeous edition presents this beloved book in a beautiful cloth-bound hardback with silver foil.
