Product description

Book Description

The War of the Worlds, the best alien invasion novel ever written, gets a superb sequel from the man who knows Wells' work best, the author of the official sequel to The Time Machine. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Alien invasion juiced up by alternate history, with real people as well...from sci-fi's Valhalla, the shade of Wells must be applauding. Perhaps with a touch of envy."--Wall Street Journal

A highly enjoyable work of homage and extrapolation. Baxter's chapters are short, sharp shocks, and he cleverly reuses many of Wells's original characters...[and] regularly offers intertextual winks to readers who know their Wells.--The Washington Post

"Tightly gripping storytelling [that] reads like a genuine labour of love. I can't think of another living writer more deserving of the "official heir of Wells" tag than Baxter." - The Guardian

"The style and tone are spot on...cleverly extrapolates Wells's themes and incorporates scientific theories of the day."--Financial Times

An ingenious work by a perceptive admirer...never less than highly diverting.--Times Literary Supplement

"A superb sequel...turns the terrific tale Wells told in his time into the foundation of something greater. [A] fitting and filling follow-up to one of science fiction's great standard-bearers."- Tor.com

"An audacious exercise in alternative history...and a hugely exciting adventure."--SFX Magazine

"Very much a tribute to HG Wells...a wholly unexpected treat of a sequel."--SF Crowsnest

"Surprisingly thoughtful...[a] page-turning novel that pays homage to the original story but then enhances it." - SFFWorld --This text refers to the paperback edition.
