Description of this Book

The Time Machine (1895) and The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896) brought H.G. Wells instant fame and established him as one of the pre-eminent founders of modern science fiction. Even at their most bleakly pessimistic and ironic, these stories testify to the resources of human courage and ingenuity. This edition offers authoritative texts of both novels, explanatory notes, an Introduction setting them in the context of Wells's life and thought, and the age in which they were written.
