The Time Machine
A special edition of The Time Machine by H. G. Wells reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan’s 70th anniversary.
A brilliant scientist constructs a machine, which, with the pull of a lever, propels him to the year AD 802,701. The time traveller finds himself on an idyllic Earth inhabited by the small, incredibly beautiful Eloi people who live quiet, purposeless lives in paradise. Yet all is not as it seems, and beneath the earth Morlocks – a terrifying, cannibal race that toil in the darkness – are lying in wait . . .
Considered by many to be the best science-fiction novel of all time, The Time Machine is a pioneering classic and truly gripping tale from the author of The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man.
In the media
The Time Machine ... that little masterpiece
J. B. Priestley
He succeeds in placing before the reader a vision of the world in cosmic time
I personally consider the greatest of English living writers [to be] H.G. Wells
His scientific romances are still unsurpassed
