Star Begotten: H.G. Wells

A man wonders whether his "fey" wife could be an alien. Instead of having it out with her he consults a couple of not very interesting old men and the story peters out in Utopian speculation.

A book that justifies G.K. Chesterton's gag that Wells was "a born story-teller who sold his birthright for a pot of message".
