Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) is known, along with Jules Verne, as one of the 19th-century fathers of logical, rational science fiction. The Soul of a Bishop is a more intuitive tale, about a bishop haunted by strange dreams and visions that challenge his faith. His other works include science fiction novels such as The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). From:

Macmillan was founded in 1843 by Daniel and Alexander Macmillan, two brothers from the Isle of Arran, Scotland. Daniel handled the business, while Alexander dealt with obtaining authors. An American office was opened in 1869 by George Edward Brett. In 1896 Macmillan sold its American operations to the Brett family which resulted in the creation of the American Macmillan Publishing. The heads of the American and British companies remained close despite the split.
