A new SF Masterwork edition of H. G. Wells' classic time-travel story, with an introduction by Gwyneth Jones.
A Victorian scientist develops a time machine and travels to the year 802,171 AD. There he finds the meek, child-like Eloi who live in fear of the underground-dwelling Morlocks. When his time machine goes missing, the Traveller faces a fight to enter the Morlocks' domain and return to his own time.
The Time Machine remains one of the cornerstones of science-fiction literature and has proved hugely influential.
