(Paperback, 192 pages, first published in 1898)

The first and most influential novel about aliens invading Earth, from the founding father of science fiction. Vintage Classics.


The War of the Worlds conjures a terrifying, tentacled race of Martians who devastate the Earth and feed on their human victims while their voracious vegetation, the red weed, spreads over the ruined planet. The novel's hero is trapped in what is left of London, despairing at the destruction of human civilization, when he discovers that life on Earth is more resilient than he had imagined. Adapted by Orson Welles for his notorious 1938 radio drama and subsequently by many filmmakers, H. G. Wells's timeless story shows no sign of losing its grip on readers' imaginations.
