Welcome to the Best of the Masterworks: a selection of the finest in science fiction

When Edward Prendick is shipwrecked on a tropical island, he is surprised to find he has company in the form of Dr Moreau.

Driven out of Britain in disgrace, Dr Moreau has decided to explore his science in peace and isolation.

It isn’t long before Prendick discovers the horrors it involves . . .

Considered widely to be one of the fathers of science fiction, H.G. Wells’ story of a mad scientist pushing the boundaries of humanity sits alongside Frankenstein and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in the annals of British classics. The novel has been adapted multiple times, and is referenced in many different media.
