The Time Machine—a term coined by Wells—was first published in 1895, and details the invention of a character known only as The Time Traveler. The narrator recounts the Traveler's lecture to his weekly dinner guests that time is simply a fourth dimension, and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for traveling through it. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale.
With Poe-like ingenuity and whimsical reasoning, we accompany The Traveler on a wild flight to the distant future, the year 802,000AD. In this fantasy future world everyone lives in extremes. All of the citizens are either rich or poor; master or
slave; aristocrat or toiler.
About the Author
H.G. Wells is considered by many to be the Father of modern Science Fiction. When read today, the works of Wells reveal a prophet. Herbert George Wells, however, will always remain a master storyteller, balancing imaginary situations with such great detail that flights of fancy appear real.
