Synopsis:

“Fun all the way through... carried out with both a respect for Wells’s great work and a sense of humor about its own purpose.” —Asimov’s Science Fiction

“Sometimes slapstick, sometimes thoughtful, the book’s delights are really too numerous to describe in detail.” —The Valley Times

The Martian Invasion

Nineteen gut-wrenching reports from the front lines of the War of the Worlds, as logged by Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Theodore Roosevelt, H.P. Lovecraft, Winston Churchill, Jules Verne, and many of the other most famous writers of the time.

The most popular and acclaimed science fiction writers of today relive the Martian invasion through the eyes of their famous predecessors.

From the Publisher: H.G. Wells's immortal novel The War of the Worlds describes an invasion of Earth from Mars through the fictional dispatches of a London newspaper reporter. Besides the struggle in England, the reporter mentions similar battles taking place all over the planet. Yet we have only been able to see one segment of the global catastrophe--until now.

In this deviously delightful collection, nineteen leading science fiction writers imagine Wells's Martian invasion from other locations--and through the eyes of his contemporaries, both authors and notable figures. From Jules Verne in Paris to Rudyard Kipling in India, from Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba to the Dowager Empress in China, and fourteen others, we see our fellow humans at war with the Martian menace.

Best of all, the real-life authors of these tales include some of the brightest stars in the science fiction firmament: Gregory Benford, David Brin, George Alec Effinger, Barbara Hambly, Mike Resnick, Robert Silverberg, Walter Jon Williams, Connie Willis, Dave Wolverton, and many others. All the stories were commissioned especially for this volume, with one notable exception: a reprint of Howard Waldrop's celebrated tale "Night of the Cooters," in which the invading Martians face their toughest Earthly challenge: the Texas Rangers.

Here is one of the most original and entertaining SF-anthology concepts in years, perfectly executed with poise, precision, and great good humor. Here is the Martian invasion that might have been, from the Earthlings best prepared to tell the tale. Copyright © 1996 by Kevin J. Anderson.
