>> First published in 1898, "The War of the Worlds" is considered to be the

>> science fiction novels ever written. It has been adapted for radio, stage,

>> including comics and graphic novels. Alongside "The Time Machine", "The
>> Invisible Man", and "The Island of Dr Moreau", Wells' "The War of the
>> Worlds" stands out as perhaps his most popular work. This is the first time
>> that this novel has been published in Cornish.
