|Read The Time Machine (Illustrated) at Amazon|
Old-school science fiction/fantasy, told as a story related to the author about the Time Traveler's trip into the future(s). What the time traveler discovers there fuels his conclusions about the future of humanity.
Wells' description of the millions-of-years in the future sounds so similar to what I've heard scientists project, that I have to wonder if that information was available in his day.
I read The Time Machine as one of the 101 Fantasy Books in 10 Years, and I'm glad I did. It was a good read, engaging and quick.
