The Time Machine      by H.G. Wells

The revolutionary novel that catapulted readers into the future, from the father of science fiction, H.G. Wells.

"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. 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.
