About This Book
Decades ahead of his time, H.G. Wells leaps beyond the bounds of conventional imagination to tell the story of the Time Traveler. An innovative scientist pilots a time machine and finds a world utterly changed, and in which the Time Traveler finds himself an alien on his own planet.
When the Time Traveller courageously stepped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the year 802,701 — and everything has changed. In another, more utopian age, creatures seemed to dwell together in perfect harmony. The Time Traveller thought he could study these marvelous beings — unearth their secret and then retum to his own time — until he discovered that his invention, his only avenue of escape, had been stolen.
H.G. Well's famous novel of one man's astonishing journey beyond the conventional limits of the imagination first appeared in 1895. It won him immediate recognition, and has been regarded ever since as one of the great masterpieces in the literature of science fiction.
This edition features an introduction by Melvin Burgess.
