Late in the nineteenth century, a Victorian scientist shows his disbelieving dinner guests a device he claims is a Time Machine. Respectable London scarcely has the imagination to cope with him. A week later they reconvene to find him ragged, exhausted and garrulous. The tale he tells is of the year 802,701, of life as it is lived exactly on the same spot, in what once had been London.Wells's tale of the Victorian future is more than a fantastical yarn - it raises chilling questions about progress, social order, so-called civilisation and the ultimate fate of the world.
