H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds is one of the greatest sci-fi / horror stories of all time. This particular publication is a rare, delicate, French paperback edition by Parisian editor-publishers Calmann-Levy.
The planet Mars is nearing exhaustion, it’s dying. The Martians, decide to seize the young, bountiful planet Earth for their own use, regarding its current occupants as wholly dispensable. Landing in several locations in the south-east of England, they begin their conquest. Can man, with his most advanced nineteenth century weaponry (bear in mind, Wells wrote this book back in 1898) hope to stop the Martians with their much more advanced technology?
As one of the finest examples of nineteenth century fantasy-fiction, this book contains a gripping tale that masterfully combines horror and suspense.
