Carl Piermarini has added new photos of his full size Time Machine on his site.

The War of the Worlds (Books of Wonder)

This new edition of The War of the Worlds is the first illustrated edition of the unabridged text in over thirty years. The full-colour illustrations are by Tom Kidd, a widely known fantasy illustrator, whose unique approach for this project was to create images in the style of the period in which the book was written - an approach he intends to follow for his next Wells project: An illustrated edition of The Time Machine.

Tom Kidd has received four Hugo nominations and has won four Chesley Awards and the Anlab Award.



The Time Machine
$5.99 from Amazon.com.
This item will be released on
December 9, 2001.

Please note: This is not a novelization of the new movie.

This is the movie tie-in and is a reprint of the first American paperback edition published by Berkley in 1957. This is also the same as the 1960 movie tie-in for the Pal adaptation.

This edition does have a new introduction written by Simon Wells.

    "(CNN) -- In the science-fiction classic, "The Time Machine"(1960),
    Rod Serling steps into something that looks like a
    combination gold-plated golf cart and hydrofoil,
    a fabulous thing with flashing lights and a crystal gear shift,
    and travels through time."
    (Their original story did say Serling, they have since corrected their error)

  6. Off site link to Diane's Rod Taylor site
    Grand Opening was on Rod's birthday, January 11

    Very nice look at Rod's career
