This chapter covers the first years of Wells’s international fame; his health, his decision to build a house for himself at Sandgate and critical accounts of the influential dystopia When the Sleeper Wakes (1899), the semi-autobiographical comic novel Love and Mr Lewisham (1900) and the parodic science fiction of The First Men in the Moon (1901).
