War of the Worlds Audiobook

War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Gerry O'brien Release Date: August 2020

This classic, early 19th century science fiction masterpiece serves as both a wonderful period presentation of the time as well as a cautionary tale. Called by many a 'chilling novel account of a Martian invasion of London in the nineteenth century – a science fiction classic for all time.' It was made famous by Orson Welles Mercury Theatre mid 20th Century adaptation that literally had thousands of people running for their lives at the time in the Northeast U.S.

The War of the Worlds Audiobook

The War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells, H.G. Wells Narrator: Alexander Spencer Release Date: January 2004

Orson Welles' 1938 radio adaptation of The War of the Worlds has done much to obscure the real brilliance of the original work. Written at a time when "science-fiction" did not exist as a genre, The War of the Worlds was a new departure in literature. Author H.G. Wells, deeply committed to social improvement in turn-of-the-century Britain, used extra-terrestrial invasion to predict the results of a not-entirely-impossible violent upheaval in contemporary society: for "Martians" read "bolsheviks." His book is social prophecy of the first order and only coincidentally one of the great works of science-fiction.

Love and Mr Lewisham Audiobook

Love and Mr Lewisham

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Peter Joyce Release Date: January 2007

Love and Mr Lewisham is a hugely uplifting tale from the pen of one of our greatest writers. Wells drew on his own experience as a young teacher to provide the background and, one suspects, the emotional drama. The plot enables him to satirise the educational establishment and deliver many wry observations on Victorian morality and the obsession with the supernatural.One day Mr Lewisham sits at his makeshift desk at his lodgings. He is an assistant master at Whortley proprietary school. He is 18 years old and he has a plan. In 6 years he will be fluent in 5 languages, have a good all round education, honours from university and the means to support himself. He will become one of the leading thinkers in the new Socialist movement and eventually his name and his work will be respected by all. He will achieve greatness.This will be accomplished by diligent study. He will rise each morning at 5 and his day will be divided into work periods to enable him to develop his mind accumulating knowledge in the required subjects. His progress will be controlled by the plan - the ‘Schema’ Nothing will get in his way.The next day Mr Lewisham falls in love ...

The War of the Worlds Audiobook

The War of the Worlds

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Christopher Hurt Release Date: July 2012

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own..." So begins The War of the Worlds, the science fiction classic that first proposed the possibility that intelligent life exists on other planets. This spellbinding tale describes the Martian invasion of Earth. Following the landing in England of ten huge and indefatigable creatures, complete chaos erupts. Using their fiery heat rays and monstrous strength, the heartless aliens threaten the future existence of all life on Earth. This classic chiller, when adapted for radio in 1938 by Orson Welles, was realistic enough to cause widespread panic throughout the United States. "This archetypal story of alien invasion provided a model for countless cruder imitations."-Cambridge Guide to Literature in English

The Invisible Man Audiobook

The Invisible Man

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: Gordon Griffin Release Date: May 2017

One night a stranger wrapped in bandages and eccentric clothing arrives in an English village. That stranger, Griffin, is a brilliant and obsessed scientist who has discovered how to turn his entire body invisible. Although he initially feels joy at his newfound freedom and abilities, that joy quickly turns to despair when he struggles to discover a way to reverse the process. As Griffin gradually loses his sanity, his initial, almost-comedic adventures as an invisible man become overshadowed by a streak of more terrifying acts...First published in 1897, The Invisible Man ranks as one of the most famous scientific fantasies ever written. Part of a series of pseudo-scientific romances written by Wells early in his career, the novel helped establish the British author as one of the first and best writers of science fiction, and it continues to enthrall science-fiction fans today as much as it did its first readers nearly one hundred years ago.

The War of the Worlds: Penguin Classics Audiobook

The War of the Worlds: Penguin Classics

Author: H. G. Wells Narrator: David Harewood Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. This Penguin Classic is performed by the critically acclaimed actor David Harewood, one of the stars of the television series Homeland. Harewood is also known for his roles in award-winning productions The Night Manager and Blood Diamond. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Brian Aldiss' read by Roy McMillan. The night after a shooting star is seen streaking through the sky from Mars, a cylinder is discovered on Horsell Common in London. At first, naïve locals approach the cylinder armed just with a white flag - only to be quickly killed by an all-destroying heat-ray, as terrifying tentacled invaders emerge. Soon the whole of human civilisation is under threat, as powerful Martians build gigantic killing machines, destroy all in their path with black gas and burning rays, and feast on the warm blood of trapped, still-living human prey. The forces of the Earth, however, may prove harder to beat than they at first appear. The War of the Worlds has been the subject of countless adaptations, including an Orson Welles radio drama which caused mass panic when it was broadcast, with listeners confusing it for a news broadcast heralding alien invasion; a musical version by Jeff Wayne; and, most recently, Steven Spielberg's 2005 film version, starring Tom Cruise. H.G. Wells (1866-1946) was a professional writer and journalist. Among his most popular works are The Time Machine (1895); The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), filmed with Bela Lugosi in 1932, and again in 1996 with Marlon Brando; The Invisible Man (1897); The War of the Worlds (1898); and The First Men in the Moon (1901), which predicted the first lunar landings.
