H.G. Wells’ novel, “The War of the Worlds,” made people start to look at the sky in a whole new way—from over their shoulders. Written in a journalistic style, blending fantastic events with real-life locations and actual science of its day, Wells’ novel chronicles the sudden Martian invasion of our planet Earth. “The War of the Worlds,” and its realistic approach, launched a new, chilling genre of fiction and went on to inspire numerous variations and adaptations for radio, television, comics and film.

About the Author

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
