Wow!! One of my all time favourite sci-fi novels so I'm off to grab a copy!
Can I suggest for future translation some of the John Wyndham and John 
Christopher books? Wyndham's Triffids, Midwich, Web are superb and stylish 
sci fi classics. John Christopher's Death of Grass is unforgettable, too. 
And all his other global disaster/alien invasion tales are gems.
As for Moonfleet in Cornish...
And is there nobody out there who could pen a series of whodunnits set 
around Glasney with a 'Brother Cadfael' type sleuth?!

Evertype is pleased to announce the publication of H. G. Wells' War of the 
Worlds, translated into Cornish by Nicholas Williams and illustrated by 
Mathew Staunton.

"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... Yet across the gulf of space, 
minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, 
intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious 
eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us."

First published in 1898, "The War of the Worlds" is considered to be the 
first "alien invasion" tales, and has been one of the most influential 
science fiction novels ever written. It has been adapted for radio, stage, 
and screen, and has inspired and influenced many works of fiction, 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.
