Anybody read H.G. Wells?

I suppose everyone has heard of "the time machine"
But, has anyone here read some of his other works? (like I have)
He is very insightfull considering his time period.
For example he predicted widespread use of wind power to generate electricity at a time when electricity was very rarely used.

Just finished reading War of the Worlds, and I've read most of The Food of the Gods. Recently I went to the used book store and got a book of his short stories which I've heard a bit about, also a compilation with his scifi romances (time machine, Dr. Moreau, war of the worlds, men in the moon, etc.).
Definitely one of my favorite scifi authors and written in the 18th century makes it all seem way wtf-ish. I mean, how would he ever have come up with such insane ideas.

I only read time machine.

Its quite cool thinking about how people could be like in the long past and in the future especially. Some of the issues that he discussed about, like the humans becoming a few different "kinds" are already happening IMO, the ones that lives below(the rag poor) and one that lives above(the stinking rich).(or maybe these issues have been there for ages already)

I dunno, nowadays i really find it hard to squeeze out time to read. Hopefully can have time to pick up a few more of his works.
