Introduction by Arthur C. Clarke
Commentary by Jules Verne and an anonymous reviewer from The Critic

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than mans and yet as mortal as his own. Thus begins one of the most terrifying and morally prescient science fiction novels ever penned. Beginning with a series of strange flashes in the distant night sky, the Martian attack initially causes little concern on Earth. Then the destruction eruptsten massive aliens roam England and destroy with heat rays everything in their path. Very soon humankind finds itself on the brink of extinction. H. G. Wells raises questions of mortality, mans place in nature, and the evil lurking in the technological futurequestions that remain urgently relevant in the twenty-first century.
