This was an intriguing collection of short stories, each one offering a different take on the Martian invasion from War of the Worlds, all set in Australia. Some I really enjoyed, while others were not quite as entertaining. But they all had me turning the page to find out what happened next.
With stories set during the initial invasion, present day, and in the future, this collection offers a diverse range of plots as the authors reimagine the world as we know it. It was hard to pick a favourite, with three standing out once I had finished the last page - Enemy of my Enemy, A Fair Go to Mars, and The Second Coming of the Martians, with Cat and Mouse also standing out.
With a range of characters both reliable and unreliable, flawed and heroic, and endings that leave you wondering, this collection is sure to delight science fiction fans who are looking for something different and are ready to explore a world of what ifs based on the one main event.
