The War of the Worlds Audiobook

The War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Rebecca K. Reynolds Release Date: February 2021

Hot on the heels of the blockbuster film comes a version of H.G. Wells' chilling tale of alien invasion that every child can enjoy. It begins as the sky lights up with bright cylinders from Mars that look like falling stars--and continues as the Martians emerge from their vessels with machines of fire and deadly smoke. Wells's depiction of a city in panic--written in 1898--still remains shockingly contemporary.

A Story of the Days to Come (Unabridged) Audiobook

A Story of the Days to Come (Unabridged)

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Peter Walters Release Date: November 2020

'A Story of the Days To Come' is a novella by H. G. Wells comprising five chapters that was first published in the June to October 1899 issues of The Pall Mall Magazine. It was later included in an 1899 collection of Wells's short stories, Tales of Space and Time. The novella depicts two lovers in a dystopian future London of the 22nd century and explores the implications of excessive urbanisation, class warfare, and advances in the technology of medicine, communication, transportation, and agriculture. Like When the Sleeper Wakes, published in the same year, the novella extrapolates the trends Wells observed in 19th-century Victorian London two hundred years into the future. The London of the early 22nd century has a population of over 30 million, with the lower classes living in subterranean dwellings, and the middle and upper classes living in skyscrapers and largely communal accommodations. Moving walkways interconnect the city, with fast air-travel and superhighways available between cities. The countryside is largely abandoned.

Von 1973 bis 1990 strahlte Sender Freies Berlin (SFB) die beliebte Hörfunksendung 'Nur für starke Nerven' (ab 1987 unter dem Namen 'Die Mitternachtsstory') aus. Der Schauspieler Friedrich Schoenfelder las darin Grusel- und Kriminalgeschichten für Erwachsene zur guten Nacht vor.

Die Sendereihe umfasste mehr als 500 Folgen. Friedrich Schoenfelder konnte in mehr als 140 TV- und Kinofilmen, in mehr als 50 Hörspielen und als Synchronsprecher seine schauspielerische Leistung als distinguierter Gentleman aber auch als Charakterdarsteller unter Beweis stellen. In dieser Folge liest Friedrich Schoenfelder die Geschichten 'Augusthitze' und 'Nacht über dem Moor' von W. F. Harvey, 'Schicksal' von Saki, 'Der schöne Anzug' von H.G. Wells, 'Der Bahnwärter' von Charles Dickens und 'Der Fluch der Feuer und Schatten' von William Butler Yeats.

The War of the Worlds (Unabridged) Audiobook

The War of the Worlds (Unabridged)

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Michael Troy Release Date: October 2020

The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by English author H. G. Wells, first serialised in 1897 by Pearson's Magazine in the UK and by Cosmopolitan magazine in the US. The novel's first appearance in hardcover was in 1898 from publisher William Heinemann of London. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is one of the earliest stories to detail a conflict between mankind and an extraterrestrial race. The novel is the first-person narrative of both an unnamed protagonist in Surrey and of his younger brother in London as southern England is invaded by Martians. The novel is one of the most commented-on works in the science fiction canon. The plot has been related to invasion literature of the time. The novel has been variously interpreted as a commentary on evolutionary theory, British imperialism, and generally Victorian superstitions, fears and prejudices. At the time of publication, it was classified as a scientific romance, like Wells' earlier novel The Time Machine. The War of the Worlds has been both popular (having never been out of print) and influential, spawning half a dozen feature films, radio dramas, a record album, various comic book adaptations, a television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It was most memorably dramatized in a 1938 radio program that allegedly caused public panic among listeners who did not know the Martian invasion was fictional.
