Summary

Three thrilling and thoughtful works of science fiction from a literary giant.   From one of the great writers and thinkers of the modern era, this volume includes three brilliant novels.  The War in the Air: Filled with petrol-powered war machines, ironclads, bombardments, and espionage, this novel, a cornerstone of early science fiction, prophesied methods of warfare that would only develop later in the twentieth century.  The Sleeper Awakes: After falling into a drug-induced sleep in 1897 London, a man is stunned to wake in the year 2100 to a world he does not know—but this world knows him—in this prophetic, unsettling novel about technology and humanity.  The Time Machine: A scientist journeys hundreds of thousands of years into the future to discover how humanity has evolved—and while Earth may seem radically different on the surface, some things have remained the same . . . belowground.

    When old drunken sailor Billy Bones dies at the Admiral Benbow Inn, the innkeeper's son Jim Hawkins finds a map amongst his possessions. The local physician, Doctor Livesey, and the squire, Trelawney, believe the map is of an island where the infamous pirate Captain Flint buried his treasure. They decide to buy a ship to go and find it, and Jim decides to join the crew as cabin boy. 
     
    But also joining Captain Smollett's crew is a one-legged cook with a parrot named Long John Silver. As Jim discovers, Silver is just one of the crew who was also part of Captain Flint's crew, and they're planning a mutiny. After they reach the island and the pirates rise up, Jim is separated from the others loyal to Captain Smollett. He soon learns that they are not alone on the island after all, and that perhaps the treasure has already been found. 
     
    Treasure Island has been entertaining readers of all ages for 130 years and it is just as witty and as thrilling today as it was when first published. This special edition includes the much-loved original text, along with new maps and an exclusive Foreword by Mackenzie Crook, star of Pirates of the Caribbean, children's author and scriptwriter.
