Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

London, England.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, the most significant event in human history has come to pass. Contact from an alien planet has been achieved. Rocket capsules fired from the surface of Mars have crashed into the southern

English countryside.

But what should be a moment of scientific curiosity and wonderful first contact between two alien worlds turns instead into disaster. The annihilative weapons of the Martians leave no doubt whatsoever about the nature of the alien contact -an outright invasion of Earth.

In the midst of the chaos and devastation, one man makes a desperate attempt to save himself and make his way back to his family. Follow his account of the incredible events he encounters in Campfire's vivid adaptation of H G Wells's

masterpiece, The War of the Worlds.

About the Author

Considered one of the pioneers of science fiction, Herbert George Wells was born in England on 21st September 1866. At the age of eighteen, Wells joined the Normal School of Science in Kensington where he was taught by T H Huxley.

This was a crucial period of his life as it had an immense influence on his writing. He enjoyed writing stories and articles and gradually moved into writing on a full-time basis. In 1895, his first major novel, The Time Machine, was published.

H G Wells continued writing until his death at the age of seventy-nine in 1946.
