"e;The Undying Fire"e; is a theological fantasy novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1919. Job Huss is a modern man who is struggling to come to terms with the fact that his life is falling apart. Unbeknownst to him, God and Satan are in agreement that the man's ancestor, the Biblical Job, was not put though a stern enough of a test, and contrive to have a rematch of their celestial game of chess. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "e;The Time Machine"e; (1895),"e;The Invisible Man"e; (1897), and "e;The War of the Worlds"e; (1898). The Father of Science Fiction"e; was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
