The Time Machine

Front Cover
Aston & James Publishing, LLC, Mar 7, 2017 - 114 pages
Wells' classic tale of time travel was written when Einstein was only 16 years old, and before Einstein's time dilation hypothesis as well as his Theory of General Relativity were being considered mainstream ideas. Wells' unprecedented and forward looking tale of a dystopian future where the dreaded Morlocks feed upon the trusting Eloi, is a frightening preview of what happens when there are class distinctions.

About the author (2017)

H. G. Wells was born in Bromley, England on September 21, 1866. After a limited education, he was apprenticed to a draper, but soon found he wanted something more out of life. He read widely and got a position as a student assistant in a secondary school, eventually winning a scholarship to the Royal College of Science in South Kensington, where he studied biology. He graduated from London University in 1888 and became a science teacher. He also wrote for magazines. When his stories began to sell, he left teaching to write full time. He became an author best known for science fiction novels and comic novels. His science fiction novels include The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Wonderful Visit, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The First Men in the Moon, and The Food of the Gods.
