H.G. Wells was an American author who came out to criticize the idea of playing with science and satirized Evolution. This is done in The Greatest H.G. Wells book- EVER! The Island of Dr. Moreau, which is also notable for keeping Marlon Brando's career on life support long enough for it to say goodbye to its loved ones.
He also wrote The War of the Worlds, which was later ripped off by Tom Cruise.
