“There’s a slightly old-fashioned quality to his speech that compliments Wells’ old-fashioned brand of science fiction … rises above the source material, making these audio editions a great way to experience these two classics.” – John Joseph Adams, Locus

As James Patrick Kelly writes in this month’s (September 2004 issue) Asimov’s Science Fiction, “What makes this the first science fiction time travel story is that the Time Traveler actually builds his machine.” Previous fictitious time travelers (like Ebeneezer Scrooge or the Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court) didn’t have a choice in the matter.
