The War of the Worlds first appeared in print in 1897. It is perhaps the most notorious of all science fiction works, and one of the first to envision a full-scale conflict between humans and extra terrestrials. Orson Welles famously adapted the novel for radio in 1938, presenting the drama as a series of simulated news bulletins-convincingly enough to cause panic among a large portion of the national audience. Many other adaptations have been produced over the years, the most recent of which was the 2005 feature film starring Tom Cruise. Sayre Street Books offers the world's greatest literature in easy to navigate, beautifully designed digital editions.
