The Chronic Argonauts (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 8,154 Words

In 1888, while a student, H.G. Wells published "The Chronic Argonauts," a 3-part story serialized in The Science Schools Journal. He would later return to the themes and recreate the story as the classic novel, The Time Machine. (After The Time Machine's publication, Wells tried to suppress "The Chronic Argonauts," going so far as buying all copies he could find and destroying them.) Today, the story is a rarity in its original publication, but it is hardly a classic work in the same vein as its successor novel. As a literary curiosity, it commands some interest, but do not go into it expecting anything on the scale of Wells's later, greater novels.
