The Time Machine
Independently Published, Sep 17, 2021 - 48 pages
With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine's lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth. There he discovers two bizarre races--the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks--who symbolize the duality of human nature. Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century and launched H.G. Wells's successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of Science Fiction.
