It is 1999, and David Lambert, jilted lover and museum curator, is about to discover the startling news of the return of H. G. Wells's time machine to London. Motivated by a host of unanswered questions and innate curiosity, he propels himself deep into the next millenium. As he sets foot in the luxuriant but menacing new landscape, he soon begins to explore the ruins of his life, a labyrinth of erotic obsession and remorse involving his old friend Bird, and Anita - the beautiful, eccentric Egyptologist they both loved, mysteriously dead at thirty-two.

A Scientific Romance is a book of surpassing creativity and intelligence, as evocative as it is cautionary.
