Comedian and author, Shawn Wickens, likes to credit himself as the “translator” for this volume. “The Time Machine Backwards” is his follow-up to the First Edition of the “Time Machine Blueprints”, also available on Amazon (, which is playfully mostly blank, serving as an optimistic invitation to the future to provide a complete version of actual time machine blueprints. The inspiration for a book published in the wrong direction came to Wickens after he realized that his work “Time Machine Blueprints” could be considered an accidental prequel to the original “The Time Machine” since, logically time machine blueprints would come before a working time machine. And before there could be a complete version of the time machine blueprints, there would have to be a mostly blank version.

While Shawn Wickens is available for appearances, he humorously declines readings of “The Time Machine Backwards”. After all, reading a book designed to be enjoyed in reverse poses a delightful challenge best experienced privately.

About H. G. Wells:

H. G. Wells, born Herbert George Wells, was a visionary English writer best known for his contributions to the science fiction genre. Born on September 21, 1866, Wells became one of the pioneers of speculative fiction with classics such as “The War of the Worlds”, “The Invisible Man”, and, of course, “The Time Machine”.

Wells’ works, characterized by their forward-thinking ideas and exploration of the possibilities and perils of scientific and technological advancements, have left an indelible mark on literature. “The Time Machine”, originally published in 1895, is considered one of the earliest examples of a time travel novel and remains a cornerstone in the realm of science fiction.

As “The Time Machine Backwards” playfully revisits Wells’ iconic work, it pays homage to the literary genius whose imagination paved the way for countless tales of adventure, exploration, and the boundless potential of the human mind.
