Stories include a clock that reverses the order of history, a potion that prolongs youth, a machine that disintegrates matter, the prospect of the earth burning to a crisp from the heat of the sun and the effects of the absence of gravity. When first written these stories were no more than fascinating and exciting fantasies, but time and progress have given them a terrifying touch of modern-day reality. Read by Nicky Henson bringing just the right amount of tension and suspense to these electric stories.
