H. G. Wells' science fiction novel of an alien invasion was the first of its kind and remains his most popular book. It has influenced both literature and other media, including several films, and a famous radio drama.More
H.G. Wells’ 1898 novel War of the Worlds has lived on through countless radio and movie adaptations. It’s a testament to Wells’ ability to stoke elemental fears in a story that many view as an allegory for xenophobia and British imperialism.
Wells’ original story begins with an unnamed narrator witnessing a "meteor" crashing south of London. From the crash site, gruesome-looking Martians emerge, terrorizing the planet with three-legged "fighting-machines". The tale follows the narrator as he runs for his survival.
Walter Zimmerman takes on a British voice in his urgent performance of this thrilling, resonant science-fiction classic.
