The War of the Worlds
H.G. Wells
Price: $2.99
We have learned now that we cannot regard this planet as being fenced in and a secure abiding place for Man; we can never anticipate the unseen good or evil that may come upon us suddenly out of space.

H.G. Wells’ science fiction novel is considered the original alien invasion epic, however it is also a commentary on the impact of imperialism. The novel was most recently adapted for film by Steven Spielberg, starring Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning.
