The Time Machine - HG Wells, 1895

The Time Machine was the first major work of fiction that popularised the idea of technological time travel, rather than 'magical' time travel. Wells was way ahead of his time writing this one, and it's considered to be the forerunner to a lot of modern sci-fi. It's important to understand what was going on in the world when Wells penned this; it was a time of great technological change. We're at the turn of the century where more and more people were moving to the cities to take part in the ongoing industrial and technological advancements following the industrial revolution. This is a must read for anyone wanting to start off in technological or science fiction, and you'll be ever surprised by Wells' foresight.
