The Apple

'The Apple' is a fantasy-mystery short story by H.G. Wells. It is the tale of a student who, whilst travelling by train in a third-class carriage, is offered genuine, forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. This rare treasure was apparently found in the Garden of Eden by a stranger. But how on Earth did the stranger come into possession of the fruit and what use is it to the young student?

A mysterious and intriguing tale which will be enjoyed by fans of 'Good Omens'.
