SummaryAdd a Summary
A short science fiction novel about a Time Traveller's recollection of his adventure in time travel. It was an interesting read, though not overly exciting. The end was a bit of a cliffhanger.
A group of men, including the narrator, is listening to the Time Traveller discuss his theory that time is the fourth dimension.

They sit down after dinner, and the Time Traveller begins his story.
