In Vino Veritas meal at the Strawberry Gardens. This elongated image of the book cover matches my frame of mind.
Recent posts must surely have exhausted discussion of The Time Machine at least for the time being? This short work is all the more remarkable for being HG Wells' first published novel. Perhaps the amount of rewriting helps to explain its quality. I have tried to show that this one work is important in itself and for science fiction and is highly relevant to Poul Anderson's much larger body of work on time travel. Discussing The Time Machine has been closely connected to rediscussing very disparate works by Anderson united by the time travel theme. The Time Machine is extremely brief whereas the Time Patrol series is long but we want to read more about both.
I did not expect to make it as far as a third paragraph. Good night to everyone, including those for whom it should be good morning!
