The H.G. Wells classic that helped launch the time travel genre.

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.

The Time Machine inspired the international bestseller The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma. As a gift to our readers, we are including the first three chapters of The Map of Time in this ebook edition.


  • It really questions the nightmare of what youth can do if there’s no sense to serve the elders.

    I like how fire made him golden to them.
  • Engaging story

    This was everything any fan of sci-fi expected from the classic. You can see how this story was the inspiration to thousands of others since the 127 years after it was published.

  • Great science; okay social science

    By Zeenat.Mahal
    The Time Traveler’s scientific curiosity is his main charm. The narration inside the narration creates space for mystery and doubt. Some weird comments about race aside, the book is also an interesting critique of Victorian society.
