The Time Machine

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, May 31, 2011 - Fiction - 176 pages
The H.G. Wells classic that helped launch the time travel genre.

The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class.

The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.

Such a fantastic book! H.G. Wells was truly ahead of his time (pun intended) with the writing of this book. This book has inspired me in so many ways, as well as revolutionized my views of the time-space dimensions. This book is a MUST-READ for any Science-Fiction fans!
