Front Cover Fridays #10

H.G. Wells wrote The Time Machine in 1895 in London. The 32,000 word book is readable in an afternoon sitting. It is the origin of the term “time machine”, and has inspired hundreds of other science fiction works. Check out what the first edition cover looked like back then…

About APC

Following his days in the Octagon, APC worked for an undisclosed amount of time tracking and studying a colony of Yetis in eastern Nepal (read more about his travels in his memoir, "Backgammon 101: Let the Yeti Win"). Nowadays, he spends his time in Havana fitting model ships inside glass bottles, and counting his gold bullions with his chimpanzee, Don Ultimo.
