Flesh-eating monsters from the deep terrorise the Devon coast.

Stories by the great English sci-fi writer.

After a suspicious-looking object is washed in by the tide, flesh-eating monsters from the deep are soon terrorising residents along the Devon coastline.

H G Wells's thrilling adventure story was first published in 1896.

Read by Robert Bathurst.

English author and political philosopher, H G Wells (1866-1946) is recognised as one of science-fiction's founding-fathers, producing more than 80 books.

George Orwell believed that 'the minds of all of us, and therefore the physical world, would be perceptibly different if Wells never existed.'

Producer: Gemma Jenkins

Made for BBC 7 and first broadcast in 2006.
