This is one essay from the anthology The War of the Worlds

H.G. Wells has been called the father of science fiction, and with genre defining classics like The War of The Worlds and The Time Machine, it’s obvious why. In this volume, which also includes the full text of The War of the Worlds, some of the genre’s top names discuss Wells and his most famous work, from the setting to the scientific milieu, to speculation on Martian society.

About the Author

Ian  Watson

Ian Watson has written SF full time for the past 30 years, from The Embedding (1973) to Mockymen (2003), in which aliens adopt human guises. Sometimes he himself adopts the guise of H. G. Wells at SF conventions, which exonerates him from any naughty conduct—see A year’s work with Stanley Kubrick in 1990 led to screen credit for screen story for “A.I. Artificial Intelligence,” subsequently directed by Steven Spielberg. Ian lives with a black cat in a tiny village in rural England. His tenth story collection, The Butterflies of Memory, is due in the fall 2005 from PS Publishing.
