In this short story, Mr. Cave, a shop owner, finds a strange crystal egg that serves as a window into a Martian landscape.

The War of the Worlds was probably H.G. Wells' best-known work, but this brief tale indicates that he had more than a passing interest in Mars. The artifact that the title refers to would not seem too extraordinary today, but this brilliant prediction of robotic planetary exploration seemed fantastic in the early 20th century.

Herbert George Wells, better known as H.G. Wells, was an English writer best known for such science-fiction novels as The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and The Island of Doctor Moreau. He was a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction, and produced works in many different genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. Wells, along with Jules Verne, is sometimes referred to as The Father of Science Fiction. Download and start listening now!

    " i read this solely because it was mentioned in "league of extraordinary gentlemen". the action was good, but the writing tended to get a bit too philosophical for my taste. "

    " This was enjoyable short read! Not the finish that I had expected. The only other telling of this story that I knew was on the old TV anthology series Tales of Tomorrow. Wells' original was much different and equally as interesting. "
