SummaryAdd a Summary
A short science fiction novel about a Time Traveller's recollection of his adventure in time travel. It was an interesting read, though not overly exciting. The end was a bit of a cliffhanger.
A group of men, including the narrator, is listening to the Time Traveller discuss his theory that time is the fourth dimension. The Time Traveller produces a miniature time machine and makes it disappear into thin air. The next week, the guests return, to find their host stumble in, looking disheveled and tired. They sit down after dinner, and the Time Traveller begins his story.
