THE WAR OF THE WORLDS
The War of the Worlds is a classic read by millions the world over. It is a chilling account of a Martian invasion in London set in the nineteenth century.
It starts one evening after a shooting star is witnessed streaking across the night sky that originates from Mars. A cylinder is discovered on Horsell Common in London. Locals wearily approach the object and are instantly killed by a heat-ray. A terrifying tentacled invader then emerges from the cylinder. Mankind is on the brink of extinction when the powerful Martians start building gigantic killing machines – towering tripods that destroy everything in their path with gas burning rays. They gorge on the blood of humans, who are kept alive inside off their machines. However, Earth proves harder to beat than anticipated. Do the humans succeed in winning, or does the victory come from something much, much smaller?
THE TIME MACHINE
The classic tale follows an English scientist/inventor who lives in Richmond, Surrey in Victorian England. He creates a machine capable of time travel and journeys to the world of 802,701 AD. He finds humanity divided between the bad and the beautiful.
THE INVISIBLE MAN
Griffin is a scientist who has devoted his life to his research into optics; trying to invent a way to become invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself but fails in his attempt to reverse the procedure. He hides, completely swaddled in bandages, and behind dark glasses. He is a guest at The Coach and Horses. People assume him to be a shy accident-victim. He struggles to find an antidote. Forced from the area, and driven to murder, he seeks out an old friend, Kemp.
