The Stolen Bacillus and Other Incidents is a collection of fifteen fantasy and science fiction short stories written by the English author H. G. Wells between 1893 and 1895. It was first published by Methuen & Co. in 1895 and was Wells's first book of short stories. All of the stories had first been published in various weekly and monthly periodicals. This again, said the Bacteriologist, slipping a glass slide under the microscope, is a preparation of the celebrated Bacillus of cholera-the cholera germ.The pale-faced man peered down the microscope. He was evidently not accustomed to that kind of thing, and held a limp white hand over his disengaged eye. I see very little, he said.Touch this screw, said the Bacteriologist; perhaps the microscope is out of focus for you. Eyes vary so much. Just the fraction of a turn this way or that.Ah! now I see, said the visitor. Not so very much to see after all. Little streaks and shreds of pink. And yet those little particles, those mere atomies, might multiply and devastate a city! Wonderful!
