Men Like Gods Summary

Men Like Gods - Men Like Gods (1923) is a novel — referred to by the author as a "scientific fantasy" — by H. G. Wells. It features a utopia located in a parallel universe.

Several characters in the novel are directly taken from the politics of the 1920s. Rupert Catskill probably represents Winston Churchill, as he was seen at that time: a reckless adventurer. Catskill is depicted as a reactionary ideologue, criticises Utopia for its apparent decadence, and leads the attempted conquest of Utopia.
