Post Wells, H.G.: The Sleeper Awakes. v1. 29 Sep 2009

Description from Amazon:

A troubled insomniac in 1890s England falls suddenly into a sleep-like trance, from which he does not awake for over two hundred years. During his centuries of slumber, however, investments are made that make him the richest and most powerful man on Earth. But when he comes out of his trance he is horrified to discover that the money accumulated in his name is being used to maintain a hierarchal society in which most are poor, and more than a third of all people are enslaved. Oppressed and uneducated, the masses cling desperately to one dream – that the sleeper will awake, and lead them all to freedom.

Note: This is a revised version of the book originally published under the title When the Sleeper Wakes. Wells was very unhappy with the original version of the book and, as described in a preface to this version, 12 years after its initial publication, re-released it in this revised form.

Enjoy!
