Description
 
Brian Holmsten (ed); Alex Lubertozzi (ed); Ray Bradbury (fr). In 1898, H.G. Wells wanted to find out what it would be like if an intelligent race of Martians conquered & colonized England. For readers around the world, “The War of the Worlds” elicited their deepest fears. In 1938, Orson Welles adapted the H.G. Wells novel to radio & used a series of realistic “newsflashes” as part of the story, to drive more than a million people mad with terror. It would became the most notorious radio broadcast in history. Here is the story behind the story -- how the book & the broadcast went on to inspire hundreds of imitators. In this book & audio CD, you will hear the actual 1938 Orson Welles broadcast, read the original book by H.G. Wells & the radio play, & see the people, places & things that turned a story into a legend.
