"The official sequel authorised by the Wells literary estate, although beware that time-streams have shifted and the Morlocks are now "intelligent and cultured". It's very much a personal interpretation for the most part, but it has many little Wellsian touches and there is a short 'faithful' section at the end when the Traveller returns to the original time of the Morlocks/Eloi."
"Veteran SF author ties the Time Machine into War of the Worlds. A slow start - it takes several chapters for the story to get going. Keep in mind that cover illustration is a publisher's con - that's not Weena, it's Amelia sitting on a chair. Nor is that the original Time Traveller, but rather a travelling salesman who ends up on Mars. The book doesn't go to Weena's time."
"George Pal always wanted to do a sequel to his movie version of Time Machine - but had to settle for fiction. Reading a plot summary elsewhere, it doesn't seem what I would have wanted from a sequel. The second half is apparently the Time Traveller's son fighting a 'war against giant insects at the end of the earth'."
"Norton's critical edition of the text. Not just yet another another reprint, this contains some original reviews, a history of the complex revisions and drafts, Wells's earlier 'try out' stories, unpublished sections that were cut, and about six academic essays."
"Morlocks invade London, having found out how to make time machines. Rather dismal, according to several reviews, and more of a basic fantasy novel but with the monsters made out to be Wells's creatures."
"Apparently a cheap DAW translation of what all critics say is a very unsatisfactory German attempt at a sequel (a novelette, 24,000 words), originally written in the 1930s and said to be mostly concerned with the technical details of time travel."
"I guess we can also consider George Pal's wonderful adaptation and reworking as a kind of sideways sequel. He adds some very nice touches that Wells might have added: such as the Xmas 1899 start; the stop-offs along the way to Weena's time, the revised/expanded character of Filby as the narrator. The DVD edition is excellent."
