Description
'I've had a most amazing time . . . ' So begins the Time Traveller's astonishing firsthand account of his journey eight hundred thousand years beyond his own era - and the story that launched H. G. Wells's successful career and earned him the reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine's lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races - the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks - who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of tomorrow as well. Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells's expert storytelling and provocative insight, The Time Machine will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come. With an Introduction by Greg Bear and a New Afterword by Simon J. James
