The War of the Worlds
"A meteor hits the earth in the early 20th century. Martians rise from the crater in devastating death machines and lay waste to the surrounding land. How can the earth's population avoid total annihilation at the hands of these bloodthirsty aliens? First published in 1898, The War of the Worlds is a fantasy that is both startlingly up-to-date and in touch with the most ancient of human fears."--
