A strange novella. A doctor, alarmed by his wife's aloofness and lack of emotion, becomes convinced that more and more "different" children are being born like her. His theory is that cosmic rays are mutating humans into a superior race, and that the changes are intentional.

Not one of Wells' better novels. More wishful thinking than great storytelling.
