    In the 19th century, a small group of American idealists managed to actually build Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine and use it to develop Cliology, mathematical models that could chart the likely course of the future. Soon they were working to alter history’s course as they thought best. By our own time, the Society has become the secret master of the world. But no secret can be kept forever, at least not without drastic measures. When her plans for some historic real estate lead developer and ex-reporter Sarah Beaumont to stumble across the Society’s existence, it’s just the first step into a baffling and deadly maze of conspiracies.

    "El país de los ciegos: Y Núñez se encontró a sí mismo intentando explicar el ancho mundo del que había caído, el cielo y las montañas, la visión y otros prodigios como aquellos ... Y ellos se negaron a creer o a entender nada de lo que les dijo ... Ni siquiera comprendieron muchas de sus palabras. Durante catorce generaciones, aquella gente había estado ciega y aislada del mundo de los videntes. Los nombres de las cosas alusivas a la visión se habían olvidado y habían cambiado."

    This is H.G. Wells at his best, delving into fantastic and strange worlds. The Time Machine, perhaps Wells' best known work, tells the story of the first time traveler. In the distant future the human race has evolved into two beings: the gentle Eloi and their dreaded cousins, the Morlocks, masters of the underworld.
