Description

“The Time Machine” is a seminal science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells. At one of his weekly dinner parties, an English scientist reveals that he has devised a machine with the ability to carry a person through time. To demonstrate his invention, he returns at dinner the following week and recounts a remarkable tale. An example of classic science fiction, “The Time Machine” is widely considered as responsible for the popularisation of the concept of purposeful time travel, especially in fiction. It is also in this novel that the term “time machine” was coined by Wells. This book is highly recommended for all lovers of science fiction and is not to be missed by fans of Wells’ work. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Invisible Man” (1897) and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
