Pour retourner en Almery et enfin se venger, Cugel se lance donc dans un nouveau périple foisonnant de dangers et de créatures farfelues... Une nouvelle fois, il lui faudra user de stratagèmes et de cette diplomatie sans scrupules qui lui ont si souvent permis de se sortir de situations compromettantes. Mais si la chance sourit aux audacieux, il semble bien que le pire menace toujours les filous. Et l'atout dont il dispose, cet objet magique et puissant qu'Iucounu convoite par-dessus tout, ne sera sans doute pas de trop pour l'aider à triompher de son perfide ennemi...

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells , Greg Bear (Introduction) , Carlo Pagetti (Foreword)

“I’ve had a most amazing time....” So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future bur “I’ve had a most amazing time....” So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era—and the story that launched H.G. Wells’s successful career and earned him his reputation as the father of science fiction. With a speculative leap that still fires the imagination, Wells sends his brave explorer to face a future burdened with our greatest hopes...and our darkest fears. A pull of the Time Machine’s lever propels him to the age of a slowly dying Earth.  There he discovers two bizarre races—the ethereal Eloi and the subterranean Morlocks—who not only symbolize the duality of human nature, but offer a terrifying portrait of the men of tomorrow as well.  Published in 1895, this masterpiece of invention captivated readers on the threshold of a new century. Thanks to Wells’s expert storytelling and provocative insight, The Time Machine will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come.

And afterward, I sent the maid onward; and she, having no word from her Mistress to stay, went forward a little; and in this fashion we came at last to the hedge-gap, with the Lady Mirdath very hushed; but yet walking anigh to me, as that she had some secret pleasure of my nearness. And I led her through the gap, and so homeward to the Hall; and there bid her good-night at a side door that she held the key of. And, truly, she bid me good-night in an utter quiet voice; and was almost as that she had no haste to be gone from me that night.
