Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Energetic, intense, and strikingly original, H. G. Wells's 1898 tale of a hostile invasion of England by Martians gripped the popular imagination and pioneered the genre of science fiction. The novel unfolds from the point of view of an unnamed protagonist, whose suburban home chances to fall into the path of the initial invaders. The fast-paced narrative offers an exceptionally realistic account of the Martians' fantastic appearance, sophisticated technology, and increasingly bloodthirsty advances. This realism carried over into Orson Welles's 1938 radio dramatization of the book, which caused widespread panic in the United States. Science fiction buffs are sure to welcome this large-print edition of one of the great classics of science fiction.
