Description of this Book

The Time Machine is considered by many to be one of the finest works of English fiction. This highly entertaining novella has had an enormous influence on English fiction in general and science fiction in particular. Even the term 'The Time Machine' (coined by Wells) is now used universally to refer to hypothetical machines capable of time travel. ***** An unnamed observer is the narrator of the story about the time traveler who uses his machine to travel to the future. The narrator relates the time traveler's adventures as told to him by the traveler upon his return. It includes travels to far distant futures and meetings with strange adaptations of humans like the Eloi and the Morlocks. The book contains a wealth of fascinating ideas and theories, many of which are still discussed today. ***** This edition includes an afterward by Dr. Paul Cook, a science fiction writer and a member of the English faculty at Arizona State University.
