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.

Outstanding Read

This book represents a superb and detailed account of everything you would expect and want to read of this classic! The way it reads simply takes you in to the story and with such absorption you wont realise another hour has passed. Hard to put down however you will constantly be flicking back through the pages just to admire the incredible artwork.

A fantastic book.

This is a wonderful version. The illustrations are stunning, and my 11 year old daughter has been so excited with it, gasping when we’ve turned the pages together. Congratulations! Must buy!

Unmatched Quality

This is a great way to read this story, as well as provide a new way for others who already know the title. If you only know the Hollywood version of War of the Worlds, then you don't know the real story.
