In this one-of-a-kind science fiction
anthology, H. G. Wells’ classic tale of Martian invasion serves as a takeoff
point for a rare flight of the imagination. Here some of today’s leading
science fiction authors, including Connie Willis, George Alec Effinger, Robert
Silverberg, Barbara Hambly, Mike Resnick, Gregory Benford, and David Brin
relive Earth’s greatest disaster through the eyes of major historical
personages from all over the world. These nineteen all-new stories comprise one
of the most startlingly original and entertaining anthologies in years,
perfectly preserving the spirit of H. G. Wells’ classic.
This is the Martian invasion as it might
have been, from the Earthlings best prepared to tell the tale. Here are
eyewitness accounts from: Teddy Roosevelt (Mike
Resnick), Pablo Picasso (Daniel Marcus), Winston Churchill and H. Rider Haggard
(Janet Berliner), Albert Einstein (Doug Beason), Jules Verne (Gregory Benford
and David Brin), H. P. Lovecraft (Don Webb), Mark Twain (Daniel Keys Moran and
