Reader's note

Sci-fi lovers will delight in this 1964 edition of H. G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds. This classic is one of the greatest works of science fiction ever to be written. Before man had learned to fly, Wells wrote this story of a Martian attack on England. These unearthly creatures arrive in huge cylinders, from which they escape as soon as the metal is cool. The first falls near Woking and is regarded as curiosity rather than a danger until the Martians climb out of it and kill many of the gaping crowd with a Heat-Ray. These aliens have heads four feet in diameter and colossal round bodies, and by manipulating two terrifying machines they are versatile as humans at the same time insuperable. Definitely one to add to your reading list and this orange Penguin will add some vintage glamour to your bookshelf!
