The Time Ships
The highly-acclaimed sequel to H G Wells’s The Time Machine, from the heir to Arthur C. Clarke.
Written to celebrate the centenary of the publication of H G Wells’s classic story THE TIME MACHINE, Stephen Baxter’s stunning sequel is an outstanding work of imaginative fiction.
The Time Traveller has abandoned his charming and helpless Eloi friend Weena to the cannibal appetites of the Morlocks, the devolved race of future humans from whom he was forced to flee. He promptly embarks on a second journey to the year AD 802,701, pledged to rescue Weena. He never arrives. The future was changed by his presence… and will be changed again. Hurling towards infinity, the Traveller must resolve the paradoxes building around him in a dazzling temporal journey of discovery. He must achieve the impossible if Weena is to be saved.
