EM Forster is best known for his exquisite novels, but this short story masterpiece published in 1909 is astoundingly prophetic and poignant today: a chilling prediction and exploration of our increasingly complex relationship with technology.

In a dystopian underground world, Kuno alone questions humanity's total dependence on technology to live and communicate. In his struggle to break out can he reach the Earth's surface before the machine stops?
