The Time Machine is one of the most influential science fictionnovels of all time. It is an adventure story documenting the TimeTraveller’s travel into the future by a machine constructed by him.Once there, he discovered that society, as he knows it, has falleninto ruins. All that is left are remnants of crumbling buildings andovergrown vegetation. He comes in contact with two species insteadof modern humans. Much of the novel concerns the Time Traveller’shorrifying discovery of this divided world. It gradually becomesapparent that the novel is more than an adventure story; it is alsoa parable about the ultimate kind of society stratified by class, bythose who have and those who do not.The book is a work of great imagination that can be read andappreciated by fans of both Science Fiction and Non-Science Fiction.

Jack London

Jack London (1876-1916), whose life symbolized the power of will, was the most successful writer in America in the early 20th Century. His vigorous stories of men and animals against the environment and survival against hardships were drawn mainly from his own experience. An illegitimate child, London passed his childhood in poverty in the Oakland slums. At the age of 17, he ventured to sea on a sealing ship. The turning point of his life was a thirty-day imprisonment that was so degrading, it made him decide to turn to education and pursue a career in writing. His years in the Klondike searching for gold left their mark in his best short stories; among them, The Call of the Wild and White Fang. His best novel, The Sea-Wolf, was based on his experiences at sea. His work embraced the concepts of unconfined individualism and Darwinism in its exploration of the laws of nature. He retired to his ranch near Sonoma, where he died at the age 40 of various diseases and drug treatments.
