Here are the books and films (one film actually) that I'm planning to explore for Classics Retold:
The original (and pretty short) classic novel The Time Machine
The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma which has H.G. Wells as a character involved in a plan to save lives and literary characters.
The Time Ships by Stephen Baxter is a sequel to The Time Machine that brings in modern knowledge of quantum physics to support the original story.
"Time After Time" is a wonderful movie I saw earlier this year where Malcolm McDowell as H.G. Wells accidentally reveals his time machine to Jack the Ripper and must travel to the future to capture him when the Ripper steals the time machine.
If I have time, I'll definitely throw in one of the film adaptations of the book - I haven't decided which one to watch yet!
And something extra cool that I came upon when searching for H.G. Wells things - a rare audio interview between Orson Welles and H.G. Wells. I'm amazed to be able to hear H.G.'s voice! It's really not what I thought he would sound like.
