The first great novel to imagine time travel, H. G. Wells’s The Time Machine (1895) follows its narrator on an incredible journey that takes him eventually to the earth’s last moments. When a Victorian scientist invents a machine that allows him to travel to the year A.D. 802,701, he encounters a highly evolved society of people called Eloi, for whom suffering has apparently been replaced by refinement and harmony. First impressions are misleading, however, and his discovery of the Eloi’s true relationship to the brutish Morlocks who lurk in tunnels beneath them leads him to a horrifying insight into the fate of mankind and its roots in his own time.

H. G. Wells (1866-1946) was a prominent English socialist and pacifist, and a prolific writer in many genres. As the author of The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The Time Machine, he is considered a pioneer of science fiction.

“[Wells] contrives to give over humanity into the clutches of the Impossible and yet manages to keep it down (or up) to its humanity, to its flesh, blood, sorrow, folly.” —Joseph Conrad
