Stephen Baxter contributes an introduction to one of the cornerstones of science-fiction literature
At first, the far future looks like an enchanting place to the Time Traveler. 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 when his time machine goes missing, the Traveler must venture into their subterranean world to find his way back to his own era.
About the Author :
H G Wells has contributed to The Time Machine as an author.
Herbert George Wells's (1866-1946) career as an author was fostered by a childhood mishap. He broke his leg and spent his convalescence reading every book he could find. Wells earned a scholarship at the Norman School of Science in London. Wells's "science fiction" (although he never called it such) was influenced by his interest in biology. H. G. Wells gained fame with his first novel, "The Time Machine (1895)." He followed this with "The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), " and "The War Of The Worlds (1898)."
