The Machine Stops-

Found this over at Old School Heretic.

The Machine Stops
by E. M. Forester (1909)


  1. Genuinely disturbing. I'd seen this before but forgotten about it--thanks for the reminder.

  2. Great little story and so in tune with today's mechanistic world.

  3. Glad to have helped. It's an excellent story and Forster wrote it in 1909, before there was any sort of real science fiction genre as we know it now. I like that he wrote it as a response to H. G. Wells and his utopias. Cool stuff.
