The Time Machine / the Invisible Man (Chartwell Classic)
Book Sales, Incorporated, Oct 11, 2022 - 268 pages
Collect two masterpieces from the "father of science fiction," H. G. Wells, in this elegantly designed, jacketed hardcover that features a new introduction.
The Time Machine propels the time traveling protagonist to the distant year of 802,701 AD. To his horror, he find only a decaying Earth that is being gradually swallowed by the Sun, and where two strange species--the delicate Eloi and the fierce, subterranean Morlocks--inhabit an eerie dystopia.
The Invisible Man offers the mesmerizing account of a bitter young scientist who discovers the chemical secret of invisibility. After using it on himself, he embarks on a terrifying descent into crime, obsession, and insanity. Both of these science fiction classics are as chilling as they are thought-provoking.
Required reading for any science fiction or thriller fan, this book is a must-have for your collection.

I rather enjoyed this book, such breadth of feeling and scenery in a pretty short book. I really enjoyed the scenes if the time travelers own introspection about what would cause this stratification ... Read full review
