Abstract:

H.G. Wells became famous as a prophet, predicting tanks, aerial bombing, nuclear war, gas warfare, lasers and industrial robots. The War of the Worlds was the first novel to explore the possibilities of intelligent life from other planets, and is still startlingly vivid, having lost none of its impact since it's publication in 1898. It was the source of Orson Welles' 1938 radio broadcast, so realistic it caused a panic, as well as two film versions. The story begins with the arrival of the Martians just outside London and ends with the near-annihilation of humanity.
