The Holy Terror
At intervals since the publication of The Open Conspiracy in 1928 Wells sought opportunities to clothe his political ideas, in one guise or another, in fictional form. His most ambitious effort in this direction was The Shape of Things to Come (1933) but in The Holy Terror, published in 1939, he produced a long novel constructed from much the same materials as his history of the future but in which the Open Conspiracy takes the form not of a dedicated minority of enlightened revolutionaries but a political party.
