The War of the Worlds is a science fiction novel by the British author H.G. Wells. It was originally serialized in Pearson's Magazine in the United Kingdom and Cosmopolitan magazine in the United States in 1887. It was first published in a single volume in 1888. Its plot concerns the invasion and colonization of Earth by aliens from the planet Mars.

The novel has been adapted to other media numerous times, the best known adaptations include a 1960 movie produced by George Pal and a 2005 one directed by Steven Spielberg. The most infamous adaptation remains the American radio version, directed by Orson Welles, which was conceived as a Halloween entertainment and first broadcast on October 30, 1938. The first sixty minutes of the drama take the form of a "live news broadcast". Many listeners who heard the program in October 1938 believed that they were hearing genuine news of an alien invasion and panic ensued.
