"H. G. Wells is the Shakespeare of Science Fiction!"--Isaac Asimov. Here are three of the greatest science fiction novels ever written: <I>The Time Machine, The First Men in the Moon</I>, and <I>When the Sleeper Wakes</I>. "Wells possessed a prolific imagination which remained based in biological and historical possibility--and his best works are exemplary of what sf should aspire to," says <I>The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction</I>. In this giant omnibus you will read Wells' epic vision of the future from the present to the far distant future where even the sun has died and the earth is a frigid, barren ball of ice--<I>The Time Machine</I>. Then, fly to the moon with Cavorite, that fabulous antigravity metal, and see our civilization through alien eyes--in <I>First Men in the Moon</I>. Finally, fall asleep and wake up the richest and most powerful person in the future--because you have slept hundreds of years--in <I>When the Sleeper Wakes</I>. All three novels by the father of modern science fiction, H. G. Wells, in one eBook--for one low price. All three books complete and unabridged--over 1500 pages in hardcover.

    No table of contents! 3 Books in one with no way to navigate!

    Reviewing classic literature is hardly necessary, but the formatting by the publisher of an eBook is critical. This book has no table of contents - therefore, you cannot choose which book you want to read! It starts at the first page and if you want to read the second book, you would have to flip pages till you get there. This edition is a waste of money as an eBook.
