“The Time Machine,” by H.G. Wells, is considered a seminal work of science fiction. And yet according to Zireaux, it’s so much more than that. In his highly engaging essay, “The Secret Pilot,” Zireaux makes the case that H.G. Wells’ most famous novel, written when Wells was only 22 years old, is one of the greatest works of literature ever produced. Leading us on a journey from 19th century England to the Pacific Islands, through time travel, love, science and art, Zireaux makes some fascinating insights along the way — including a remarkable revelation (a first-ever discovery?) of what may be the “The Time Machine’s” biggest secret of all.

It’s the day before his 18th birthday and Benjamin “Dionystothenes” Blake is ready to become the world’s greatest living writer. (“Dionystothenes” is a recent invention. Blake, too, is a pseudonym. Oh, and if you must know, so is Benjamin). He’s determined to become even more famous than Katherine Mansfield, and he simply cannot wait another day. So having awoken from a dream of strange portent, he sets off to explore his home town of Wellington, New Zealand; to find a lover and awaken hearts around the world. Which he does — but not like he expects.
