A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. 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. View more info

I thought of my sixpence, my only sixpe nce, and felt a distinct pang of remorse. After all, only the other day the chaplain had said how wrong it was to bet. By Jove, so he had. Decent man the chaplain. Pity to do anything he would disapprove of. I was on the poin t of recalling my wager, when before my mind's eye rose a vision of Bradsha w rampant and sneering, and myself writhing in my chair a crushed and ... View more info
