The Time Machine

“I’ve had a most amazing time....”

Thus begins the Time Traveller's incredible personal account of his adventure 800,000 years beyond his era, and the novel that began H.G. Wells's brilliant career and gained him the title of "Father of Science Fiction." 

Wells sends his heroic adventurer to face a future laden with our greatest hopes and deepest fears in a speculative leap that still piques the imagination. With a pull of the Time Machine's lever, he is transported to the age of a dying Earth. There, he meets two strange races: the ethereal Eloi and the underground Morlocks. They represent the duality of human nature and provide a terrible depiction of humanity's future. This masterwork of imagination, first published in 1895, thrilled readers on the cusp of a new century. The Time Machine will continue to enchant readers for years to come because of Wells' exceptional narrative and intriguing insight.
