“What an amazing discovery! A time machine before H. G. Wells, and lively and witty romps through history before Doctor Who. Add Enrique Gaspar to the list of inventors of science fiction, and place him high..” --Andy Sawyer, Science Fiction Foundation Collection, University of Liverpool Library

Gaspar's novel takes us back to science fiction's infancy, when emotion and intelligence were enough to evoke a sense of wonder, creating pure adventure without needing to resort to rivers of blood or extreme violence. Reading it is a surprising experience as well because, though almost 125 years old, The Time Ship proves that many of the themes we think of as current were already a concern to our great-grandparents.." --Daína Chaviano, author of The Island of Eternal Love
