“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 …”
The War of the Worlds is perhaps H.G. Wells’s most famous book. This short novel tells the story of the Earth being invaded by Martians; asking an unthinkable question: what happens when your comfortable world is turned upside down by the arrival of a seemingly unstoppable and pitiless conqueror?
This new edition has reprinted the text of the 1898 book but with the inclusion of thirty-three wonderful illustrations by the Brazilian artist, Henrique Alvim-Corrêa.
The publisher is also pleased to include an introduction by Lesley Gray. Here, Dr Gray considers Wells’s ideas and influences that resulted in the lasting impact of his famous “scientific romance”.
