This is H. G. Wells' famous 1897 science fiction masterpiece, "The War of the Worlds". Written between 1895 and 1897, it is among the first literary works concerning a war with humans and extraterrestrial beings, making it one of the most commented-on works of science fiction ever. The novel has obvious connections with the popular invasion fiction of the time, and has been interpreted as an exploration of British imperialism, evolution theory, and Victorian superstitions. A must-read for fans of science fiction and those who have read and enjoyed other works by this author. 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.
