A sequel to "The War of the Worlds", "Star Begotten" concerns another suspected attack by the Martians, this time using cosmic rays to change human DNA. Joseph Davis is a writer of popular books who becomes obsessed with the rumours of invasion, so much so that he fears his wife, child, and even him might have already been affected by the cosmic rays. Contents include: "The Mind of Mr. Joseph Davis Is Greatly Troubled", "Mr. Joseph Davis Learns about Cosmic Rays", "Mr. Joseph Davis Wrestles with an Incredible Idea", "Dr. Holdman Stedding Is Infected with the Idea", "Professor Ernest Keppel Takes Up the Idea in His Own Peculiar Fashion", et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1937.
