Synopsis: This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic of The Time Machine includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Wells' vision of the future.

As he approached the turn of the twentieth century, H.G. Wells explored the implications of the rising tide of Socialism and Darwin's theory of evolution to envision a future, 800,000 years from his own day, in which suffering, death, and human labor seem to have been replaced by beauty, peace, and innocent play. What Wells' unnamed Time Traveller ultimately comes to discover, however, are the horrific truths of a new Humanity, split and evolved into two separate races living in a false Paradise that actually fosters idiocy, weakness, and mortal terror.

Originally written in 1898, The Time Machine examines the age-old questions of humankind's ultimate destiny and the role we play in shaping it.

From the Publisher: When the Time Traveller courageously stepped out of his machine for the first time, he found himself in the year 802,700--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 return 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.
