LONG BEFORE H. G. Wells became famous as a sociologist, he was famous as a short-story writer at a time when the art of the short story had reached its peak in English literature. His fertility and exuberant imagination were taking their preliminary canter in this difficult but delightful branch of writing.
' The Man Who Could Work Miracles ' is, perhaps, a supreme example of the Wells who could visualise in the same focus the whole stirring universe and the commonplace trivialities and humour of lower middle-class life. It was recently selected by the author himself as being his best short story.
It was the originality of H. G. Wells to take as his subject a perfectly ordinary man in perfectly ordinary surroundings and to give to him some impossible attribute-in this case the power to work miracles-and it was his genius to work out convincingly what would follow to its logical conclusion. Readers will recall' The Invisible Man '. In the same way he would assume the impossible, or at least highly improbable, and write a story of genius like ' The Food of the Gods '.
The idea of adapting a short story for the microphone, and the problems that arose from doing it, are discussed in an article by the adaptor and producer in the ' Background to the Broadcast' on page 659.
