The Story Subway edition of The Time Machine is now available on both Kindle and Apple iBooks. This is arguably H.G. Wells' best-known work and certainly the book that earned him the reputation as one of the fathers of modern science fiction.
What happened to our world in the year 802,701 AD? Wells tells his story from the vantage point of Victorian London in 1895 - a centre of global power shaped by the forces of rapid industrialization, major scientific discoveries and British imperialism. The world of the future he imagines brings us to a place where the divide between "haves" and "haves nots" reaches a frightening conclusion.
Michigan-based illustrator Mike Schwartz has beautifully brought to life the world of Wells and his protagonist, the Time Traveller. A new series of illustrated annotations explores the scientific, political, historical and philosophical themes that colored Wells' own imaginings of the future.
