The Time Machine is a science fiction novella by H. G. Wells, published in 1895 and later adapted into two feature films of the same name, as well as two television versions, and a large number of comic book adaptations. It indirectly inspired many more works of fiction in many media. This story is generally credited with the popularisation of the concept of time travel using a vehicle that allows an operator to travel purposefully and selectively. The term "time machine", coined by Wells, is now universally used to refer to such a vehicle. This work is an early example of the Dying Earth subgenre.
The Time Machine in Southern VictoryEdit
On the eve of 1930, Clarence Potter couldn't remember H. G. Wells's name as he wished he'd had the Time Machine in the book that he'd wrote. However, he though that the book was a Socialist tract about the divisions between capital and labor. Still, he couldn't deny that it had more than its share of arresting images and he was fascinated by the idea of time travel.
