For years, Dover Books used to have a hardback edition of SEVEN
SCIENCE FICTION NOVELS OF H. G. WELLS, which included THE WAR OF
THE WORLDS, THE TIME MACHINE, THE INVISIBLE MAN, THE ISLAND OF DR.
MOREAU, THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, THE FOOD OF THE GODS, and IN THE
DAYS OF THE COMET.
In most parts of Europe where two languages contended for
dominance, it was the one in which the Bible was first printed that prevailed. (One reason that Welsh is still a living language today,
while Scottish Gaelic is barely hanging on, is that the Bible was
translated into Welsh in the 1580s, but there was no complete
Gaelic version until two centuries later. Now that the BBC has
full-time radio broadcasts in both languages, we can hope that
their chances for survival will improve.) [-fl]
