Description

The Penguin English Library Edition of The War of the Worlds by H.

G. Wells'Death!' I shouted. 'Death is coming! Death!'In this pioneering, shocking and nightmarish tale, naive suburban Londoners investigate a strange cylinder from space, but are instantly incinerated by an all-destroying heat-ray.

Soon, gigantic killing machines that chase and feed on human prey are threatening the whole of humanity.

A pioneering work of alien invasion fiction, The War of the World's journalistic style contrasts disturbingly with its horrifying visions of the human race under siege. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
