Considered by many to be one of the finest stories published in English, Wells coined the term 'Time Travel' in the book, and the story has inspired countless other works of time travel. The book also presents us an early example of the 'Dying Earth' subgenre in science fiction. The story reflects many of Well's own political views and explores contemporary theories concerning social degeneration and stagnation.
