HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. “For a time I believed that mankind had been swept out of existence, and that I stood there alone, the last man left alive.” When a strange, meteor-like object lands in the heart of England, the inhabitants of Earth find themselves victims of a terrible attack.

A ruthless race of Martians, armed with heat rays and poisonous smoke, is intent on destroying everything that stands in its way.

As the unnamed hero struggles to find his way across decimated wastelands, the fate of the planet hangs in the balance . . . H. G. Wells was a pioneer of modern science fiction. First serialised in the UK in 1897, The War of the Worlds is one of the earliest stories to depict conflict with an extraterrestrial race, and has influenced countless adaptations and sequels.
