  • The Time Machine and The Invisible Man (Knickerbocker Classics)

    From the “father of science fiction,” H. G. Wells, comes two masterpieces of speculative storytelling: The Time Machine and The Invisible Man.

    The former propels the reader into the distant future, where a decaying Earth 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 latter offers the mesmerizing account of a bitter young scientist who discovers the chemical secret of invisibility, uses it on himself, and embarks on a terrifying descent into crime, obsession, and insanity. Both horrifying and thought-provoking, these cautionary tales are combined into an elegantly designed clothbound edition that features an elastic closure and a new introduction.
