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.
