The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. Written between 1895 and 1897, it is a first-person narrative of the adventures of an unnamed protagonist and his brother in Surrey and London as Earth is invaded by Martians.[1]

Screed & Sons, a bookshop in Charing Cross Road that specialised in first editions and old books, had some copies of The War of the Worlds on display in the front window.[2]
