Editorial Reviews

Review

"Variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism and Victorian fears and prejudices, War of the Worlds tells the nail-biting tale of one man's struggle to track down his wife during an alien invasion. Included are some of the most vivid scenes of London in literature" * Independent * "Sharply satirises the human refusal to look beyond men's petty concerns...wonderfully suggestive" * Daily Telegraph * "The cosily familiar settings emphasise the horror of the invasion...spookily prescient of the World Wars. Science fiction often dates badly; not so here: hard to believe this was written in 1898" * Observer * "An astonishing mind and a visionary imagination" * Daily Mail * "The classic tale of alien invasion, and still the best" * The Times * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

FELIX BENNETT grew up in Bradford in northern England, and cut short a math and astronomy degree at University College, London, in order to spend more time as an illustrator. He trained at Bradford, then at the Camberwell School of Art. He now lives and works in London.

HERBERT GEORGE "H.G." WELLS was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre.

ERIC BROWN was born in Haworth, Yorkshire, in May 1960, and began writing in 1975. In the 1980s he travelled extensively throughout Greece and Asia (some of his novels are set in India). His first publication was in 1982, when his play for children, Noel’s Ark, appeared. His career took off in the late eighties with a succession of short stories in Interzone and other publications. His story “The Time-Lapsed Man” won the Interzone readers' poll for the most admired story of 1988, and an Eastercon short text award in 1995. He was voted the Best New European SF writer of the Year in the early nineties and has subsequently won the British Science Fiction Award twice (for the short stories “Hunting the Slarque” in 1999 and “Children of Winter” in 2001). --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
