Book Description

All the stories in this book were written before the First World War and were originally published in two volumes. The Celestial Omnibus in 1911 and the Eternal Moment I 1928. Although they are fantasies, and more lighthearted than the major novels like A Passage to India and Howards End, behind their amusing comedy are glimpses of profound themes. The Machine Stops is described by the author as a reaction to one of the earlier heavens of H. G. Wells’. Many of the stories express an instinctive belief in the force of nature.
