Summary (From the publisher):

H.G. Wells's first novel describes the adventures of his hero, the time-traveler, mostly in the year A.D. 802,701, when he encounters a class-ridden battle between the decadent Eloi and the primitive Morlocks. Michael York, as the time-traveler, evokes the wonder of the distant future.

Ride into the Weird Worlds of the Future. Experience the Time Traveller's shock at being trapped by cannibals 800,000 years from home! Meet the frail, pathetic Eloi... the clammy, ghostlike Morlocks who shun the daylight.

When Herbert George Wells wrote his marvelous stories about time and space, no one believed they would ever come true. They were pure fantasy, the creation of a writer's mind. But time marches on and space travel is now fact, not fantasy. Will time travel also become real? And what will real-life Time Travellers come up against when they visit the future?
