Summary (From the publisher):

LEAP INTO THE FUTURE, AND SHOOT BACK TO THE PAST

H. G. Wellsís seminal short story "The Time Machine," published in 1895, provided the springboard for modern science fictionís time travel explosion. Responding to their own fascination with the subject, the greatest visionary writers of the twentieth century penned some of their finest stories. Here are eighteen of the most exciting tales ever told.

By turns frightening, puzzling, and fantastic, these stories engage us in situations that may one day break free of the bonds of fantasy...to enter the realm of the future: our future.
