The battle for planet Earth continues in a sequel-style
story to H.G. Wells classic science fiction tale.
Based on concepts and stories originated by H.G. Wells!
The “Martian Invasion” has begun again and now mankind must fight, not only for
their homes, but for their very humanity. Aliens were the stuff of legends,
fairy tales, to scare children or to entertain those wanting to escape the
mundane existence of their lives. Few men took them seriously, let alone saw
them as a threat. Yet as mankind busied itself about their petty affairs, they
were being scrutinized and studied, perhaps as narrowly as a scientist might
watch under the microscope of the microbes that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. It happened slowly at first but by the third year, it seemed that the
war was almost over…the war was almost lost. And humanity was not going to be
the winner. This story picks up with mankind fighting a fallback battle in the
central US against a new kind of biological weapon the aliens have unleashed on
the planet. It centers on a large group of surviving individuals who wildly
differ as to how they should live their future...either quietly hold down and
go about their business and leave the aliens to the planet...or continue to
fight a seemingly hopeless war and go out dying standing on one's own two feet.
