Cylinders land on earth and the invaders, from Mars, with their huge, round bodies and tentacles, start to vaporize the people of Earth. Houses, towns and cities are soon destroyed in a spiral of violence, creating civil panic and mass evacuations before a foul black smoke is released by the aggressive alien force. But the fightback must begin, and it comes from an unexpected quarter. H.G. Wells' classic tale of invasion has stirred our imagination for over a hundred years. Its intense mix of realism and fantasy continues to prick at anyone interested in a great adventure story by a master storyteller. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.

“One of my all time favourites.”

An imaginative tale of invasion in a gothic backdrop – there’s no means to communicate widely, rising panic and an unknown powerful invader. It deftly challenges the vain notion of human supremacy as the Martians... More

“More horror than sci-fi”

In a list of the best horror stories ever written, I am repeatedly surprised not to see The War of the Worlds on that list. Sure, on the surface of it, the novel is a science fiction one, a classic written by the... More

“More Than Just A Sci-Fi Masterpiece”

H. G. Wells' tale of Martian invasion may unfold without the aid of flashy CGI or surround sound, but it is surely unrivalled as the most vivid representation of inter-world war ever produced.
