H.G. Wells is often referred to as the ‘father of science fiction’; his tales of time travel and alien invasion have enthralled generations.

His 1898 novel, The War of The Worlds, tells the story of an invasion from Mars and the ensuing conflict between the Martians and mankind. Over the years, there have been many cinematic adaptations and a musical version, but never before has there been a fully illustrated coffee table book in which the classic scenes are brought to life.

H.G. Wells: The War of the Worlds Illustrated is a 276-page hardback containing the original book text, expertly brought to life through a series of illustrations by artist, Adam Rufino. The book contains nearly 100 full-colour artworks. Also included are an introduction by science fiction author Adam Roberts, a substantial feature on the life and works of H.G. Wells and an interview with Adam Rufino that showcases his concept sketches from the books development.

Good quality, not so great art...

The book it's self is very nice. Looks cool and is top quality. The story is epic and a true classic... but you can't take teh credit for that ;) The thing that lets this down is the art. Although it is set nice in the book and some of the images are cool, the main images seem quite primative and quite crudley drawn. Not much detail, and quite amature looking. But that said, still a bargain, and great to re-read teh story! Definately worth 4 stars!

Another excellent product from Bitmap Books

The quality of the book is excellent! The art and presentation style emphasize the tone of the story and elevate the classic, fantastic tale to new heights! Highly recommended to fans of Bitmap Books and everyone else interested in reading an idealized version of a sci-fi classic.
