THE STORY OF THE SECOND JOURNEY IN TIME BY THE TIME TRAVELLER – FROM H. G. WELLS’S “THE TIME MACHINE”.
The Earth has always had two races, the Eloi and the Morlocks.
The Eloi, or surface dwellers, are a beautiful but weak and useless race, made soft and decadent, left to fatten. But now the Morlocks, the Underworlders, desire what they have hungered for, and come back to the surface of the planet at night, and begin to eat the Eloi. The Eloi are terrified of the night, of shadows and black things.
Feeling compelled and duty-bound, The Time-Traveler must return to the distant future of the Eloi and Morlocks to try to reinvigorate the Eloi and avenge the death of the Eloi girl he loved, Weena.
Deciding on the daring capable companion of General Baden-Powell, who will later found the Boy Scouts movement, they travel to the year 802,719 — gathering a group of Eloi in readiness for civil war. One which will see the Morlocks travel through time and pour into England through tunnels under the English Channel.
“A great battle is about to be fought against a more austere race of invading Morlocks. Hal Colebatch succeeds in making the sequel better than the first!” Coverage Report #758
