Vintage Sci Fi: Book No.18

vintage-sf-badgeNo.18: The Invisible Man by H G Wells

As part of Vintage Sci Fi month being hosted by Little Red Reviewer I’ve given myself a small challenge to post a vintage book each day – one that I’ve read – and to highlight some of the covers.   Today’s choice is The Invisible Man by H G Wells. Another story that was originally serialised and then published in 1897.  This is a fascinating concept (I think my favourite is the ’83):

    This story has always given me the creepy vibes, but geez, the 1986 cover is downright horror inducing. Run-away-screaming like 🙂

    I haven’t read this or anything by H G Wells – I do have a couple of his books on my Classics Club list. These are some seriously creepy covers for this book!

      I’ll have to check which books of his you have on your list. I think you’d enjoy the Time Machine.
      Some of these are indeed creepy!

    Even thought it’s indeed creepy, the 1992 cover gives off the perfect vibes 🙂
