The author of The Time Machine and War of the World conjures up an island where a mad doctor experiments with turning animals into grotesque human-like creatures. The island is discovered by survivors of a South Pacific shipwreck. Read the prescient 1896 story as a social satire and as a foreshadow of science-to-come such as gene-splicing and bioengineering.

Extrapolation - Darren Harris-Fain

Philmus's variorum edition of The Island of Doctor Moreau is a shining example of the quality of work that can and should be done in the [science-fiction] field.
