Dear HG Welles,
What was your inspiration for The Time Machine?
Andrew MayneDear Andrew,
I was laying on the couch and a image popped into my head and my wife saw the image as well. This book came from that image. It also has to do with a book I had read that was published in the 1870's called The Coming Race. The book explained that science was going to advance so much that there would be enough food for all of mankind to live like kings. And at the same time science would advance to the point that everyone could live forever. I thought that was a pretty good idea for a story.
