WHAT IT IS: “Tales of The Time Machine” will take place within the continuity of the universe originally established by Wells’ 1895 novella “The Time Machine.” It will be a “nov-ology” format; that is, an anthology collection of short stories designed to ideally be read from start to finish, like a standard novel. The book will follow the exploits of the Time Traveller, in a chronological order relative to the Time Traveller himself (i.e., he may first visit the year 2500 and then go back to the year 1000, and the book will follow the Time Traveller in this order, not in actual chronological order of the time frames visited). Stories that are submitted and accepted may be edited to flow together with one or more of the other stories to create a more cohesive, novel-like format. The book may also contain a Prologue and an Epilogue, written by me as the editor, to not only help bind the stories together but to also tie the stories in to the original novella and the “mash-up” version.
