CAIRO BOOKS's Description
When a Victorian scientist propels himself into the year a.d. 802,701, he is
initially delighted to find that suffering has been replaced by beauty,
contentment, and peace. Entranced at first by the Eloi, an elfin species
descended from man, he soon realizes that these beautiful people are simply

lurks another race descended from humanity—the sinister Morlocks. And when the
scientist’s time machine vanishes, it becomes clear he must search these
