But who shall dwell in these worlds if they be inhabited?

Are we or they Lords of the World?

The War of the Worlds (1898), by H.G. Wells, is an early science fiction novella which describes an invasion of England by aliens from Mars. It is one of the earliest and best-known depictions of an alien invasion of Earth, and has influenced many others, as well as spawning several films and a television series based on the story.
Dark Horse Comic has a really nice War of the Worlds Comic version ^^ packed in 125 colourful pages.
If you wanted to have a soft-copy of the novel, then grab in on Project Gutenberg, The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.
Or perhaps you prefer War of the Worlds in an audio-book so that you can listen to it using your iPod in your daily traffic jam :P
Either way, it's a really good read, otherwise it won't be continuously in print for over 100 years wouldn't it ? ;)
