What if the time machine from H.G. Wells' classic novel of the same name had fallen into government hands? That's the question that led Stephen Baxter to create this modern-day sequel, which combines a basic Wellsian premise with a Baxteresque universe-spanning epic. The Time Traveller, driven by his failure to save Weena from the Morlocks, sets off again for the future. But this time the future has changed, altered by the very tale of the Traveller's previous journey. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

The Time Ships was the first Baxter book I picked up and boy was I in for a surprise. I can easily say it is one of the greastest books I have read (and I've read a lot of them). Read morePublished on May 27 2000 by Phase
If you like "modern" (for lack of a better term) science fiction, which is often intensely psychological and character-driven, then Baxter is probably not for you. Read morePublished on March 11 2000 by "bmills100"
