"The Man Who Could Work Miracles" is a British fantasy-comedy short story by H. G. Wells first published in 1898. The story is an early example of modern fantasy. In an English inn, George McWhirter Fotheringay is proving the impossibility of miracles. By way of demonstration, Fotheringay commands an oil lamp to flame upside down and it does so, to his own surprise. His friends think it a trick and quickly dismiss it... but the miracles go on...
