    Cavorite: better than warp-drive

    Herbert George Wells wrote his first book, The Time Machine, in 1895. As a student I was introduced to his eighth book, A History of Mr Polly, and strangely seem to have taken on this character¿s story and role in life although he, Mr Polly, never turned out to be, like myself or his author, a Science Fiction writer. The Cephae, in my book, The Trouble with Cephae, are not unlike the Selenites found on Mr Wells¿ moon which is reminiscent of Gruyere cheese, which of course we had always know until the Apollo moon landings told us otherwise. Personally I prefer Well¿s Cavorite, for space travel, to the Warp Drive of today¿s SF space ships. Well written and fun to read.

    An unfortunatly unknown classic

    This, like all Well's books is an extremely entertaining story about the fantasticly improbable. Sadly, at least with the people i talk to, it's almost completely unknown. I think it relates very well to the general story of The Time Machine with explorers traveling to an unknown world and excapeing the dangers they find. If you liked that book i'm sure you well enjoy this one.
