When Orson Welles first read The War of the Worlds on broadcast radio in 1938 listeners far and wide panicked. H. G. Wells’ consuming account of Martians landing on Earth and obliterating everything in sight sounded all too plausible. The issues Wells explores of man’s place in the universe remain startlingly pertinent in today’s technological age of space tourists, video-game-like combat, and cloning. In fact, given The War of the Worlds’s high-tech scenario it only seems appropriate to read this science fiction classic in eBook format.
