WAR OF THE WORLDS


WAR OF THE WORLDS

H. G. WELLS    Book Number: 88886    Product format: Paperback

The classic tale of alien invasion and still the best, this was the very first modern depiction of extra-terrestrials attacking the Earth. The novel remains one of the most influential of all science fiction works and shows the whole of human civilisation under threat, as terrifying, tentacled Martians land in England. They build gigantic killing machines, destroy all in their path with black gas and burning rays, and feast on the warm blood of trapped, still-living human prey. The forces of Earth however may prove harder to beat than they at first appear. The night after the shooting star was seen, streaking through the sky from Mars, a cylinder was discovered on Horsell Common in London and locals approached the cylinder armed with just a white flag. As our hero struggles to find his way across decimated wastelands, the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. With short life and times about the author, 196pp in WilliamCollins paperback.
