A Victorian scientist develops a time machine and travels to the year 802,171 AD. There he finds the meek, child-like Eloi who live in fear of the underground-dwelling Morlocks. When his time machine goes missing, the Traveller faces a fight to enter the Morlocks' domain and return to his own time.

The Time Machine remains one of the cornerstones of science-fiction literature and has proved hugely influential.

Author Biography

H.G. Wells was born in Bromley, Kent in 1866. After working as a draper's apprentice and pupil-teacher, he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in 1884, studying under T H Huxley. It was with The Time Machine (1895) that he had his real breakthrough. Today he is regarded as one of the all-time greatest authors of science fiction.

"The Great Holy Book of science fiction." --"Locus" "The Great Holy Book of science fiction." "Locus"" For my money, this was the birth of modern science fiction. Mary Shelley invented science fiction with Frankenstein, but The Time Machine is something else. I like to try to imagine people reading this when it was originally published as a newspaper serial in 1895 England. Still unforgettable, thrilling, haunting.
