Modern day practices such as gene-splicing and bioengineering are foretold in H.G. Well's haunting visionary fable. After a collision between two ships in rough seas, Edward Prendick survived only to be stranded on the island of the infamous Dr. Moreau. The book created a sensation when it first appeared in 1896, and Wells himself later deemed the work "an exercise in youthful blasphemy."
