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

Publisher: Penguin Books

In this shocking and nightmarish tale, naïve 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 mankind.

A pioneering work of alien invasion fiction, The War of the Worlds’ journalistic style contrasts disturbingly with its horrifying visions of the human race under siege.
