Originally written as part of an Arthurian trilogy deal where K.W. Jeter, Tim Powers, and James Blaylock would resurrect Arthur at different crisis points, but though the deal faltered Jeter did not, and Morlock Night emerged in 1979 as the seminal SteamPunk novel.

Morlock Night picks up Wells' narrative of the The Time Machine after the telling of the tale and its, as we soon learn, overly optimistic end. When the traveler returns to the future to free the Eloi, we are told by the mysterious Dr. Ambrosia, he was met by a much better prepared and organized band of Morlock than he'd encountered before. Soon his blood was left spilled on the sands of that distant time, and the Morlocks were using the time machine as a troop carrier back to the only destination they could get it to go to...London in 1892.

From official release/information:

Product Description: JUST WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE TIME MACHINE RETURNED? Having acquired a device for themselves, the brutish Morlocks return from the desolate far future to Victorian England to cause mayhem and disruption. But the mythical heroes of Old England have also returned, in the hour of the country's greatest need, to stand between England and her total destruction.
