9780007117925: The Time Ships (Voyager Classics)

In this sequel to H.B. Wells' "The Time Machine", the time traveller has abandoned his Eloi friend Weena to the cannibal appetites of the Morlocks, the devolved race of future humans from whom he fled. He promptly embarks on a second journey to the year AD 802,701, pledged to rescue Weena.

What if the time machine from H.G. Wells' classic novel of the same name had fallen into government hands? That's the question that led Stephen Baxter to create this modern-day sequel, which combines a basic Wellsian premise with a Baxteresque universe-spanning epic. The Time Traveller, driven by his failure to save Weena from the Morlocks, sets off again for the future. But this time the future has changed, altered by the very tale of the Traveller's previous journey.
