Description
Introduction by Arthur C. Clarke Commentary by Jules Verne and an anonymous reviewer from The Critic "No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own." Thus begins one of the most terrifying and morally prescient science fiction novels ever penned. Beginning with a series of strange flashes in the distant night sky, the Martian attack initially causes little concern on Earth. Then the destruction erupts--ten massive aliens roam England and destroy with heat rays everything in their path. Very soon humankind finds itself on the brink of extinction. H. G. Wells raises questions of mortality, man's place in nature, and the evil lurking in the technological future--questions that remain urgently relevant in the twenty-first century.

display_description"Often referred to as the 'father of science fiction,' H.G. Wells' tales of time travel and alien invasion have enthralled generations. His 1898 novel, The War of the Worlds, tells the story of an invasion from Mars and the ensuing conflict between the Martians and mankind. This tribute to Wells' most famous novel contains the full, original text, expertly brought to life through a series of illustrations by artist Adam Rufino. Also included are features on the life and works of H.G. Wells and an interview with Adam Rufino, showcasing his concept sketches from the book's development"--Back cover.
