JOURNALIST: Two luminous, disc-like eyes appeared above the rim. A huge rounded bulk,
than a bear, rose up slowly, glistening like wet leather, its lipless mouth quivered and
and snakelike tentacles writhed as the clumsy body heaved and pulsated.

Vcl:People clawed their way off te common, and I ran too. I felt I was being toyed with,

for my newspaper before I sank into a restless, haunted sleep.

On Horsell Common, the martians continued hammering and stirring, sleepless,
at work on the machines they were making. Now and again a light, like the beam of a warships'
