Description of this Book

A special edition of The Time Machine by H. G. Wells reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary. A brilliant scientist constructs a machine, which, with the pull of a lever, propels him to the year AD 802,701. The time traveller finds himself on an idyllic Earth inhabited by the small, incredibly beautiful Eloi people who live quiet, purposeless lives in paradise. Yet all is not as it seems, and beneath the earth Morlocks - a terrifying, cannibal race that toil in the darkness - are lying in wait...Considered by many to be the best science-fiction novel of all time, The Time Machine is a pioneering classic and truly gripping tale from the author of The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man.

Author's Bio

Herbert George Wells, the son of a shopkeeper and a lady's maid, was born in Kent in 1866. A bookish child, his education was interrupted when he served a brief and gruelling apprenticeship to a draper. But Wells then went on to study biology under the great T. H. Huxley, before finding instant literary success in 1895 with the publication of his first 'scientific romance', The Time Machine. This was followed in quick succession by The Island of Dr Moreau, The Invisible Man and The War of the Worlds. A visionary and lifelong socialist, Wells also wrote extensively on social issues, history and science. He died in 1946.
