Three late-nineteenth-century novels--"When the sleeper wakes," "A story of the days to come," and "The time machine"--in which Wells expressed his ideas about the future of mankind
Stages of a consistently planned future for mankind. When the Sleeper Wakes and A Story of the Days to Come anticipate Brave New World and 1984, in the 21st century; The Time Machine (full version) shows farther future and the end of mankind. All show Wells’s greatest gifts as storyteller and novelist. Edited by E. F. Bleiler.
