The Time Machine
The Time Machine was written by H. G. Wells and published in 1895 by William Heinemann in the United Kingdom and Henry Holt in the United States.
The Time Machine is science fiction novella. The book's back cover synopsis reads as follows:
"At first, the far future looks like an enchanting place to the Time Traveller. The graceful Eloi appear to embody contentment, beauty and peace, and the Eden they live in seems to be free of suffering. But he soon comes to understand that the Eloi are fragile creatures, desperately afraid of the dark, and with good reason. For the Morlocks live in the dark, and the Morlocks are to be feared. And the Time Traveller must venture into their subterranean world to find his way back to his own era."
The Time Machine popularized the concept of time travel and the term "time machine" was coined by H. G. Wells in the novella. The Time Machine has been adapted into three films, two television series and several comic books.
