I think it's important to realize that when the time traveller leaves in the end, he has with him a bag and a camera, so the reader can infer that he will return with proof.

Aging of HG Wells

by anon_2223154702, February 27, 2015

Simple Mathematics says... HG Wells was born in 1866. So, he could NOT be 34 years old when he published "The Time Machine" as a novella in 1895. At best, he could be 29. Otherwise, good stuff!
