The Time Machine
A classic in the science fiction genre, H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine has inspired many other works of fiction, including books, films, television adaptations and comic books. The Time Traveller also appears in many popular television shows such as Doctor Who and Warehouse 13. Published in 1895, The Time Machine has captured readers’ imagination for almost 120 years. It tells the story of how an English scientist from Richmond, Surrey travelled to the future where he finds that the human race has evolved into two species, the Eloi and the Morlocks. Now represented on a BookBench, we hope this story will inspire future generations to read for pleasure and discover the range of genres that exist within our rich literary heritage.
