Wells, H.G.

'Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.'

    — H. G. Wells (1898), The War of the Worlds

H.G. Wells is considered one of the fathers of science fiction and certainly ‘The War of the Worlds’ verifies that by being one of the most popular novels written having never being out of print since publication and spawning a number of films, tv series, an album (brilliantly done), plays adaptions and of course radio series. Wells himself led a very , one might say colourful life, and he is noted for stating that his epitaph should be: "I told you so. You damned fools”.

Here we have the Easton Press deluxe illustrated edition which is a fitting tribute to this great story.
