    One night a stranger wrapped in bandages and eccentric clothing arrives in an English village. That stranger, Griffin, is a brilliant and obsessed scientist who has discovered how to turn his entire body invisible. Although he initially feels joy at his newfound freedom and abilities, that joy quickly turns to despair when he struggles to discover a way to reverse the process. As Griffin gradually loses his sanity, his initial, almost-comedic adventures as an invisible man become overshadowed by a streak of more terrifying acts...First published in 1897, The Invisible Man ranks as one of the most famous scientific fantasies ever written. Part of a series of pseudoscientific romances written by Wells early in his career, the novel helped establish the British author as one of the first and best writers of science fiction, and it continues to enthrall science-fiction fans today as much as it did its first readers nearly one hundred years ago.©2017 Dreamscape Media, LLC (P)2017 Dreamscape Media, LLC

    A comic crime caper from the popular and prolific twentieth-century author of the Jeeves novels featuring Bertie Wooster.   When Ogden Ford, the chubby son of a divorced American millionaire, arrives at a posh English prep school, he sets in motion a dastardly plot. There’s a new classics teacher at the school who’s not who he purports to be . . .   The schoolmaster in training, Peter Burns, is really working for Ogden’s mother, who wants her son back after losing custody of him to her ex-husband. What Peter doesn’t know is that he’s soon to have competition in the kidnapping contest. American gangsters have already targeted the boy, known as “Little Nugget,” for his ransom value—and they aren’t afraid to cross the pond to get him. What follows is a convoluted game of thwarted abductions, hair’s-breadth escapes, and romantic escapades.  Praise for P. G. Wodehouse   “Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” —Evelyn Waugh   “He exhausts superlatives.” —Stephen Fry   “Pure word music.” —Douglas Adams
