    One thought on “The Sea Raiders”

    1. There is not much I can say about this, other than what we have are three fantastic little stories from the mercurial mind of Mr Wells, who never fails to thrill a dulled mind.Highly recommended

    2. This little collection contains 3 stories. I really enjoyed The Sea Raiders because tentacled creatures from the depth of the ocean are creepy as hell. The Land Ironclads mostly bored me because it was very long and I had trouble following all the war descriptions. Also, I could've done without the racist comparison. The last one, The Magic Shop, was my favourite but I wish it would've ended on a more sinister note.

    3. Love H.G. Wells. Love K. Anderson Yancy and his SonicMovies. "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com."

    4. I really don't have the words to describe how much I enjoyed this Little Black Classic, particularly "The Sea Raiders". Worth your money <3

    5. This great addition to the Little Black Classics series definitely continued my thoroughly enjoyable exploration of Wells' work. Since there are only three short stories in it, I'll talk a little about each one:The Sea Raiders is a brief sci-fi, horror tale about a coastal town being attacked by horrible octopus-esque creatures that emerge from the depths of the sea. As with the 4 novels by Wells I've read thus far, it was both exciting and thought-provoking, being a still remarkably timely remi [...]

    6. The Sea Raiders: 4/5The most typical Wellsian story of the three, which serves well to get people new to his work acquianted with his style. Biological mystery experienced through the anxious first person perspective of a regular person who was fortunate enough to have an interesting point of view. Interesting, scientifically formal and fascinating as usual!The Land Ironclads: 3/5An interesting story of social class and progressive warfare which, sadly, I found hard to get through because much o [...]

    7. I enjoyed The Sea Raiders and The Magic Shop a lot more than The Land Ironclads. I found The Land Ironclads confusing, although the characters were interesting. The Magic Shop was a lot tamer than I was expecting, while The Sea Raiders was gripping and really pulled me in.

    8. Lovely and creepy trio of stories - all three gave me a chill. Just the thing to read in between chores at the weekend.

    9. This was an exceptionally well done short story. It was very intense and you felt the danger confronting the protagonist as he's attacked by tentacled monsters. I really wish this story was longer, because a story this good should not end as quickly as it did.

    10. Another Penguin Little Black Classics edition which contains more than the title suggests: included here are ‘The Sea Raiders’, ‘The Magic Shop’, and ‘The Land Ironclads’. As usual, it’s the title selection which I rate far above the others. ‘The Sea Raiders’ is a fantastic (and fantastical) tale of an attack of aquatic/oceanic squid-like creatures and several individuals' attempts to repel them; my academic interest in fin de siecle monstrosity aside, this is a remarkable shor [...]

    11. This is a great Wells short story - surprisingly Lovecraftian in its content, but also akin to War of the Worlds with its depiction of the sea creatures. In essence, it's like a microcosm of War of the Worlds, emphasising our fear of the unconquerable, in this case the depths of the ocean. It's very entertaining and well-written as always.

    12. From BBC Radio 4 Extra: Flesh-eating monsters from the deep terrorise the Devon coast. Adventure first published in 1896, read by Robert Bathurstc/programmes/b007jwdh

    13. Great little stories - I love H.G. Wells. The ones in this collection aren't my favourite, but they were fascinating as usual.

    14. "as he spoke we had a glimpse of the other youngster, a little, white face, pallid from sweet-eating and over-sapid food, and distorted by evil passions"
