Wells' The War of the Worlds <br /><br />Book Two: All's Well That Ends Wells <br /><br />This companion to the Pendragon film begins with a brief recap of the events of Book One, primarily the terrorist attacks of September 11th and the filmmakers' sense of responsibility that they could not go forward with the film as originally envisioned, feeling that it suddenly mirrored reality too closely. Tracked is the hit the film took in terms of budget, dropping from $42 million to $8 million and eventually up again to $20+ million. Creatively, the decision to hark back to the H.G.

:alien2: Over the past 2 weeks pendragon have been saying quite a lot, and because of everything that has came before i dont trust them probably enough to buy a product that they havnt even got any cover art or book pages online. Not enough proof the book will be out on time, or if it will ever be out.

I don't blame you guys, I don't know why the didn't use amazon.

The website looks terrible like Pendragons site and thats coming from a professional web design company (Me).

I think Pendragon should pull their act together and get their website more professional looking, I despair sometimes. Oh well

If, like me, you're distrustful of their ability to deliver the books, I hope you show the same skepticism when it comes to answering their ads for the movie itself coming out on DVDs.
