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.

Really fast service

I ordered this on a whim as I wanted to see what it was like. I didn’t expect such quick delivery, which was a really nice surprise. The book is a really well made item worthy of a collectors piece and, as such, my copy remains in the cellophane on my shelf of collectors items. I might actually buy another book sometime.

An excellent dip into the Wells

An excellent edition of Well's classic The War of the Worlds. Well presented, lushly illustrated, and full of extras: an intro by Adam Roberts, a vice-chair of the H.G. Wells Society, and much info generally about the author and the various media interpretations of the story: Orson Welles' acclaimed radio dramatisation, Jeff Wayne's musical album and live shows, and Hollywood's attempts at transfer to the big screen.

Truly Amazed!

The good… Excellent book (with first-rate original artwork) delivered fast in superb condition in amazing packaging along with a high resolution PDF download. And the bad… Sorry, can't see any! It is quite unusual these days to find a company who actually care! Will absolutely purchase from again.
