When a meteorite lands in Surrey, the locals don't know what to make of it. But as Martians emerge and begin killing bystanders, it quickly becomes clear—England is under attack. Armed soldiers converge on the scene to ward off the invaders, but meanwhile, more Martian cylinders land on Earth, bringing reinforcements. As war breaks out across England, the locals must fight for their lives, but life on Earth will never be the same. This is an unabridged version of one of the first fictional accounts of extraterrestrial invasion. H. G. Wells's military science fiction novel was first published in book form in 1898, and is considered a classic of English literature.

War of the Worlds by Mike Brunton Summary

On one terrible night in August 1895, the world changed forever. Grey metal cylinders, launched from Mars and hurtled through space, came crashing down in southern England. The next 15 days were marked by courage and despair, hope and shock, defeat and fleeting victory as Queen Victoria's army struggled to contain the terrible alien threat. The war, man against machines from space, was fought without mercy on both sides. And the outcome would be decided by the smallest of things... This book covers the whole of the Anglo-Martian conflict, beginning with a look at the relative strengths and weakness of the two armies, both English and alien, and comparing the different strategies employed. It then takes a detailed look at the actual military struggle, covering all of the major engagements between the tripods and Victoria's army.

The War of The Worlds (A Sci-Fi Classic) by H. G. Wells Summary

The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel. It is the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. It is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The War of the Worlds has two parts, Book One: The Coming of the Martians and Book Two: The Earth under the Martians. The unnamed narrator, a philosophically inclined author, struggles to return to his wife while seeing the Martians lay waste to the southern country outside London. Book One also imparts the experience of his brother, also unnamed, who describes events as they deteriorate in the capital, forcing him to escape the Martian onslaught by boarding a paddle steamer near Tillingham, on the Essex coast. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946), known as H. G. Wells, was a prolific English writer in many genres, including the novel, history, politics, and social commentary, and textbooks and rules for war games.

The War of the Worlds by Isley Lynn Summary

No-one would have believed in the early years of the twentieth century that this world was being watched... There is nothing more alluring than a good story. When Orson Welles adapted The War of the Worlds, he wanted to create a thrilling radio drama that would 'feel' real. In fact, it felt so real that it caused hysteria amongst a public just getting used to the outside world invading their living rooms via the radio. Fast forward to 2016, and the internet has replaced the radio as the medium through which we make sense of the world. We remain just as susceptible ... Inspired by H.G. Wells' sci-fi novel and Orson Welles' classic radio play, this legendary science fiction thriller is playfully reimagined as a play by Isley Lynn for our era of Fake News and 'alternative facts'.

The War of the Worlds (with Audio & Text) by H. G. Wells Summary

The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells. It is one of the earliest stories to detail a conflict between mankind and an extra-terrestrial race. The novel is the first-person narrative of both an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and of his younger brother in London as southern England is invaded by Martians. The War of the Worlds has been both popular and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a number of television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It was most memorably dramatised in a 1938 radio programme directed by and starring Orson Welles that allegedly caused public panic among listeners who did not know the Martian invasion was fictional. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears, and prejudices.

世界大戰【文字.有聲版】 by H. G. Wells Summary

《世界大戰》(The War of the Worlds)是英國小說家H.G·威爾斯在1898年所發表的一部科幻小說,是最早詳述人類與地外種族之間衝突的故事之一。小說以第一人稱的敘述法,描寫了在19世紀末期,當南英格蘭被火星人入侵時,一個無名主人公和其在倫敦的弟弟所遭遇的故事。 火星人從即將滅亡的火星上來到地球,對英國發動了戰爭,企圖進而統治全世界。起初人類和他們進行了友好的會晤,在不幸遭害後才對火星人展開反擊,但由於雙方的科技相差懸殊,根本無法與之對抗。火星人摧毀城鎮,屠殺人類,將人類視為一種低等動物,甚至以人類作為食物。就在火星人即將取得勝利的時候,他們卻受到了地球上的細菌的感染而全部死去。 小說直接描寫了外星人的外貌特徵,這也成了後來20世紀美國科幻小說「黃金時代」的一大特徵。威爾斯在作品中首次意識到外星人和地球人之間可能的文明衝突:星際之間的戰爭。而小說關於外星人侵略的題材,也為後來的許多科幻作品提供了基礎。有評論者認為,作者在小說中借火星人屠殺地球人之情節,暗中批判了殖民主義的殘酷無情。 《世界大戰》既受歡迎又有影響力,從未絕版,催生了眾多的故事片、廣播劇、唱片專輯、漫畫改編作品、電視連續劇,以及其後不同作者所寫的續集或平行故事。最令人難忘的是1938年由奧森.威爾斯(Orson Welles)所導演並主演的廣播節目,據稱在不知道火星人入侵是虛構故事的聽眾中,該節目引發了相當嚴重的大規模公眾恐慌。

The Massacre of Mankind by Stephen Baxter Summary

A sequel to the H.G. Wells classic THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, brilliantly realized by award-winning SF author and Wells expert Stephen Baxter It has been fourteen years since the Martian invasion. Humanity has moved on, always watching the skies but confident that we know how to defeat the alien menace. The Martians are vulnerable to Earth germs. The army is prepared. Our technology has taken great leaps forward, thanks to machinery looted from abandoned war-machines and capsules. So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to one man, Walter Jenkins, the narrator of Wells’ book. He is sure that the first incursion was merely a scouting mission, a precursor to the true attack—and that the Martians have learned from their defeat, adapted their methods, and now pose a greater threat than ever before. He is right. Thrust into the chaos of a new worldwide invasion, journalist Julie Elphinstone—sister in law to Walter Jenkins—struggles to survive the war, report on it, and plan a desperate effort that will be humanity’s last chance at survival. Because the massacre of mankind has begun. Echoing the style and form of the original while extrapolating from its events in ingenious, unexpected fashion again and again, The Massacre of Mankind is a labor of love from one of the genre’s most praised talents—at once a truly fitting tribute to a classic and brainy, page-turning fun for any science-fiction fan.

Australian Invasion It is well-known that Wells found vital inspiration for his 1897 novel in the horrific plight of Tasmanian Aboriginals who, within his lifetime, were virtually wiped out by the warfare and disease brought by foreign invaders. In Battleground Australia we discover that the war with Mars was not confined to England and did not end with all Martians destroyed by disease. In Australia some of the aliens survived and went underground, to emerge a century or more later.

Broadcast Hysteria by A. Brad Schwartz Summary

On the evening of October 30, 1938, radio listeners across the United States heard a startling report of a meteor strike in the New Jersey countryside. With sirens blaring in the background, announcers in the field described mysterious creatures, terrifying war machines, and thick clouds of poison gas moving toward New York City. As the invading force approached Manhattan, some listeners sat transfixed, while others ran to alert neighbors or to call the police. Some even fled their homes. But the hair-raising broadcast was not a real news bulletin-it was Orson Welles's adaptation of the H. G. Wells classic The War of the Worlds. In Broadcast Hysteria, A. Brad Schwartz boldly retells the story of Welles's famed radio play and its impact. Did it really spawn a "wave of mass hysteria," as The New York Times reported? Schwartz is the first to examine the hundreds of letters sent to Orson Welles himself in the days after the broadcast, and his findings challenge the conventional wisdom. Few listeners believed an actual attack was under way. But even so, Schwartz shows that Welles's broadcast became a major scandal, prompting a different kind of mass panic as Americans debated the bewitching power of the radio and the country's vulnerability in a time of crisis. When the debate was over, American broadcasting had changed for good, but not for the better. As Schwartz tells this story, we observe how an atmosphere of natural disaster and impending war permitted broadcasters to create shared live national experiences for the first time. We follow Orson Welles's rise to fame and watch his manic energy and artistic genius at work in the play's hurried yet innovative production. And we trace the present-day popularity of "fake news" back to its source in Welles's show and its many imitators. Schwartz's original research, gifted storytelling, and thoughtful analysis make Broadcast Hysteria a groundbreaking new look at a crucial but little-understood episode in American history.

War of the Worlds: Infestation #3 by Randy Zimmerman Summary

Based on concepts and stories originated by H.G. Wells! The "Martian Invasion" has begun again and now mankind must fight, not only for their homes, but for their very humanity. Aliens were the stuff of legends, fairy tails, to scare children or to entertain those wanting to escape the mundane existence of their lives. Few took aliens seriously, let alone saw them as a threat. Yet as mankind busied itself about their petty affairs, they were being scrutinized and studied, perhaps as narrowly as a scientist might watch under the microscope of the microbes that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. It happened slowly at first but by the third year, it seemed that the war was almost over...the war was almost lost. And humanity was not going to be the winner this time. THIS ISSUE: With the command center now destroyed the resistance has little, if anything, left to combat the alien's onslaught. Steven Koch remains trapped in a cellar by the Black Smoke, while Lewis and Mother McFadden try to dig their way out from what's left of the command center. At Haven, the Hellweed begins to absorb the Haven Medical Center with disastrous results. Can the people of Haven stop the ravaging weed before it envelopes the entire town? Meanwhile Julie and Dr. Smith face the Haven Town Council as it tries to decide what action they will take against them for bringing the terror of the Hellweed to Haven.

The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells Summary

Gathered together in one hardcover volume: three timeless novels from the founding father of science fiction. The first great novel to imagine time travel, The Time Machine (1895) follows its scientist narrator on an incredible journey that takes him finally to Earth’s last moments—and perhaps his own. The scientist who discovers how to transform himself in The Invisible Man (1897) will also discover, too late, that he has become unmoored from society and from his own sanity. The War of the Worlds (1898)—the seminal masterpiece of alien invasion adapted by Orson Welles for his notorious 1938 radio drama, and subsequently by several filmmakers—imagines a fierce race of Martians who devastate Earth and feed on their human victims while their voracious vegetation, the red weed, spreads over the ruined planet. Here are three classic science fiction novels that, more than a century after their original publication, show no sign of losing their grip on readers’ imaginations.

The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson Summary

With the same unique vision that brought his now classic Mars trilogy to vivid life, bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson boldly imagines an alternate history of the last seven hundred years. In his grandest work yet, the acclaimed storyteller constructs a world vastly different from the one we know. . . . “A thoughtful, magisterial alternate history from one of science fiction’s most important writers.”—The New York Times Book Review It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur—the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe’s population was destroyed. But what if the plague had killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? This is a look at the history that could have been—one that stretches across centuries, sees dynasties and nations rise and crumble, and spans horrible famine and magnificent innovation. Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson navigates a world where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practiced religions, while Christianity is merely a historical footnote. Probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power—and even love—in this bold New World. “Exceptional and engrossing.”—New York Post “Ambitious . . . ingenious.”—Newsday

War of the Worlds by Douglas Niles Summary

First the Mars probe picked up an anomaly. Then NASA saw some strange activity, and many stargazers noticed meteorites rocketing towards earth. A cylinder surreptitiously landed in Wisconsin, then another, and another, ... and then invasion from Mars. The War of the Worlds had begun. War of the Worlds:New Millennium follows in the great tradition of Wells' original masterpiece, Niven and Pournelle's Footfall, and 'V' the mini-series. It is the story of an alien invasion of earth as told from numerous viewpoints: - a writer in rural Wisconsin - a soldier in the field - a science advisor to the president As tripods leave a swath of destruction across the Americas, Washington groups some of its great minds to solve the problem as the Pentagon throws at the invaders the latest hardware the military has to offer. At stake is the survival of the human race and the dominion of planet earth. Filled with techno-thriller like detail War of the Worlds: New Millennium merges Clancy with Clarke for a truly page turning science fiction thriller. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
