Description Description

Collect two masterpieces from the “father of science fiction,” H. G. Wells, in this elegantly designed, jacketed hardcover that features a new introduction.

The Time Machine propels the time traveling protagonist to the distant year of 802,701 AD. To his horror, he find only a decaying Earth that is being gradually swallowed by the Sun, and where two strange species—the delicate Eloi and the fierce, subterranean Morlocks—inhabit an eerie dystopia.

The Invisible Man offers the mesmerizing account of a bitter young scientist who discovers the chemical secret of invisibility. After using it on himself, he embarks on a terrifying descent into crime, obsession, and insanity. Both of these science fiction classics are as chilling as they are thought-provoking. 

Required reading for any science fiction or thriller fan, this book is a must-have for your collection.
