The Magic Shop

This H.G. Wells' short story follows a young boy named Gip and his father as they enter a magic shop. Gip's wonder at the magic is contrasted with his father's skepticism about the magic tricks. It's a fun story about the wonder of magical beliefs. It is available for MP3 download from ThoughtAudio.com and narrated by Michael Scott.

The Time Machine

The Time Traveller first steps out of his magnificent time transport machine in the year 802,700! He finds the Earth populated by a race of slender pacifists and decides to study this lush land of flower people before returning to his own age. These pacifists, he discovers, have built their wealth on the backs of a slave class forced to live below ground. As the conflict between them surfaces, the Time Traveller finds that his only means of escape, his time machine, has been stolen.

Wells' amazing view of the future propelled forward from his own Victorian-era present serves both as classic science fiction and as a parable of the chasm between the working class suffering and the upper class privilege of his day.

Available on MP3 Download.
