The New Accelerator


The New Accelerator

"The New Accelerator" is a 1901 science fiction short story by H. G. Wells. The story addresses the invention of an elixir that enables an individual to move rapidly through time.

The drug has considerable advantages as well as risks, drawing upon a trope present in other of Wells' literary works that describes the possibility of scientific discoveries to be both a blessing and a curse.[1]

"The New Accelerator" was adapted for the first episode of the 2001 miniseries, The Infinite Worlds of H. G. Wells.
