Hello! I'm a composer, currently adapting Wells's "The War in the Air" as a classical/progressive rock concept album. I'd love to discuss aspects, themes and ideas about the book with others on this forum. To hear some of the music already completed, go to: http://www.reverbnation.com/#!/steamprog Thank you, Simon.
I read this fine book some years ago and was struck by the prophetic visions it contained. In particular the mention of the aircraft, manned by small yellow pilots, that came out of the east with the rising sun. nThere are clear potents here of the kamikaze missions of World War II.
So H G Wells ... true visionary or lucky guesser ... I know what I think.
I liked it because it made good visual images
