”How I Died” by H. G. Wells is a short essay. H. G. Wells once different, humorous social satire and ironic.
It is now ten years ago since I received my death warrant. All these ten years I have been, and I am, and shall be, I hope, for years yet, a Doomed Man. It only occurred to me yesterday that I had been dodging-missing rather than dodging-the common enemy for such a space of time.
