The ultimate science fiction classic
For more than one hundred years this compelling tale of the Martian invasion of Earth has enthralled readers with a combination of imagination and incisive commentary on the imbalance of power that continues to be relevant today.

About the Author

His stories have appeared in several print anthologies including Challenger Unbound (KnightWatch Press, May 30, 2015), Gaslight Arcanum: Uncanny Tales of Sherlock Holmes (Edge SF and Fantasy) and Dead Souls (Morrigan Books).

He resides with his wife, Wilma, surrounded by books and beasts, deep in the woods of New Kent, Virginia.

To list Isaac Asimov's honors, as to list his books, would be excessive. Let it simply be noted that Isaac Asimov was the most famous, most honored, most widely read, and most beloved science fiction author of all time. In his five decades as an author, he wrote more than four hundred books, won every award his readers and colleagues could contrive to give him, and provided pleasure and insight to millions. He died in 1992, still at work.

Karl Kroeber is Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University. His previous publications include "Ishi in Three Centuries" (ed. 2003), "Artistry in American Indian Myths" (1998), and "Ecological Literary Criticism" (1994).
