The Time Traveller, a dreamer obsessed with traveling through time, builds himself a time machine and, much to his surprise, travels over 800,000 years into the future. He lands in the year 802701: the world has been transformed by a society living in apparent harmony and bliss, but as the Traveler stays in the future he discovers a hidden barbaric and depraved subterranean class. Wells's transparent commentary on the capitalist society was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre.
The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time byFélix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.

The Island of Dr. Moreau (Dover Thrift Editions) by H. G. Wells
Considered one of the fathers of science fiction, H. G. Wells (1866–1946) brought enormous inventiveness and an underlying social vision and moral concern to his strange tales and bizarre imaginings.
