He then uses a full-sized apparatus to transport himself into the future and there meets the Eloi and the Morlocks-descendants of humans who have evolved, or devolved into sub-human creatures. *** This edition includes critical essays by acclaimed author and senior lecturer (Arizona State University) Paul Cook and by Alexei and Cory Panshin (adapted from their Hugo-winning work on science fiction, The World Beyond the Hill).
