"Our Cover this month depicts a scene in "The War of the Worlds," by H.G. Wells, in which the three Martians-highly developed intelligences in bodies vastly differing from ours are seen stalking in their machines, over a town near London, wreaking destruction of life and land by use of their deadly Heat-Rays and long and wiry tentacles."

From Amazing Stories Vol. 2 (No. 5) August 1927: p. 418. Published originally by Experimenter Publishing Inc., 230 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY. Copyright 1926 by Experimenter Publishing Inc.
