923 Three Prophetic Novels: When the Sleeper Wakes, A Story of the Days to Come, The Time Machine, by H. G. Wells (read 13 Oct 1967) Each of these Wells works has an article in Wikipedia, with A Story of the Days to Come being classified as a short story (though the article itself calls it a novella). I don't recall how these stories struck me, but the articles in Wikipedia are well done and explain each novel . ( )

The Time Machine (A little short on technical detail but excellent imagery especially for its time.) -
