Most of these covers feature illustrations of the Martian fighting machines. What a strange assortment of designs, many of them quite bizarre. Only 3 or 4 closely resemble Well's description, suggesting professional illustrators often don't read books whose covers they are drawing.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
