The War of the Worlds is a novel written by H. G. Wells in 1898, depicting an alien invasion of the earth, and is often regarded as being the first to depict such a disaster. The book tells the story of a Martian invasion of Earth. The Martians, fleeing their own planet because its resources are depleted, invade Earth, landing in England, sweeping through the countryside, destroying or capturing everything in their path. Any effort by the humans to thwart the Martian advance is crushed; the alien invaders seem unstoppable. Since its publication, The War of the Worlds has entered pop.

This book is a tribute to H. G. Wells, his most famous novel, and those adaptations that have been inspired by it. For more than a hundred years, readers, listeners, and moviegoers have been tantalized by the prospect of an invasion from Mars. When H. G. Wells first published The War of the Worlds in 1898, his Victorian audience responded very enthusiastically to the depth and resonance of the work because it reflected their fears and anxieties as they faced the turn of a new century. And while scenes of mass destruction and death are all too familiar to us in light of what happened on September 11, 2001, they were startlingly fresh and nightmarishly overpowering to those living in 1898. Thankfully, his Martian invasion was the stuff of fiction, not prophecy, and his invaders never arrived with their death rays, tripod machines, and poison gas. But that has not stopped his tale of interplanetary conflict from resonating with subsequent generations of people. From comic books to radio broadcasts, from movies and television to trading cards and record albums, the Martians keep coming back again...and again!

Vierzehn Jahre sind vergangen, seit die Invasion der Marsianer Englands Städte in Schutt und Asche legte. Vierzehn Jahre, seit die Angreifer vom roten Planeten an den Mikroben der Erde zugrunde gingen. Seitdem herrschen Frieden, Wohlstand und Fortschritt. Als man erneut den Start von Marsraketen beobachtet, macht sich daher keiner Sorgen – bis auf Walter Jenkins. Und er hat recht. Denn die Marsianer kommen zurück. Und sie wollen nur eins: Rache.

The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel, the first-person narrative of an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and that of his younger brother in London as Earth is invaded by Martians. It is one of the earliest stories that detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The War of the Worlds has two parts, Book One: The Coming of the Martians and Book Two: The Earth under the Martians. The unnamed narrator, a philosophically inclined author, struggles to return to his wife while seeing the Martians lay waste to the southern country outside London. Book One also imparts the experience of his brother, also unnamed, who describes events as they deteriorate in the capital, forcing him to escape the Martian onslaught by boarding a paddle steamer near Tillingham, on the Essex coast. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946), known as H. G. Wells, was a prolific English writer in many genres, including the novel, history, politics, and social commentary, and textbooks and rules for war games.

Erst als alles verloren scheint, nehmen die Dinge eine unerwartete Wendung. Spannung pur und ein Buch, das niemals wirklich alt wird. Diese zweisprachige Edition enthält sowohl den englischen Originaltext, als auch die deutsche Übersetzung. Diese Neuübersetzung aus dem Jahr 2017 stammt von Jürgen Beck, der u.a. auch Klassikern wie "Zwölf Jahre ein Sklave" oder "Der Zauberer von Oz" in ein neues, zeitgemäßes Kleid verholfen hat.

No one would have believed that in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched... These words marked the beginning of H.G. Well's classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds...and marked the end of man's child-like belief that we are alone in the universe. Published in 1898, The War of the Worlds is one of the greatest works of science fiction ever written, and it cemented H.G. Wells' legacy as a founding father of science fiction. A 1938 radio play by Orson Welles caused mass panic when it hit the airwaves, and frankly we haven't been able to trust aliens ever since. Here now, are bold new visions of Alien and Human conflicts on many different fronts, including: A man scours a distant world searching for something right under his nose...Two children terrorized by their own mother find an unlikely saviour...Giant war machines find love and more at the end of the world...A harmless looking birthday gift is really a portal to humanity's doom...

First the Mars probe picked up an anomaly. Then NASA saw some strange activity, and many stargazers noticed meteorites rocketing towards earth. A cylinder surreptitiously landed in Wisconsin, then another, and another, ... and then invasion from Mars. The War of the Worlds had begun. War of the Worlds:New Millennium follows in the great tradition of Wells' original masterpiece, Niven and Pournelle's Footfall, and 'V' the mini-series. It is the story of an alien invasion of earth as told from numerous viewpoints: - a writer in rural Wisconsin - a soldier in the field - a science advisor to the president As tripods leave a swath of destruction across the Americas, Washington groups some of its great minds to solve the problem as the Pentagon throws at the invaders the latest hardware the military has to offer. At stake is the survival of the human race and the dominion of planet earth. Filled with techno-thriller like detail War of the Worlds: New Millennium merges Clancy with Clarke for a truly page turning science fiction thriller.
