War of the Worlds: Fresh Perspective

Hi all – I work for a book publisher, BenBella Books.  I wanted to let you know about an exciting new book out over H.G. Wells’ & his classic book, The War of the Worlds.  Our book is titled The War of the Worlds: Fresh Perspectives on the H.G. Wells Classic.  Different well-known writers and contributors examine all aspects of this important work.

 

Some contributors include:

 

·         “H. G. Wells’ Enduring Mythos of Mars,” in which Stephen Baxter provides the history of man’s investigations of Mars and explains why Wells was right after all

 

  • “Just Who Were Those Martians, Anyway?” in which Lawrence Watt-Evans explains how ridiculously incompetent the Martians were as interplanetary invaders, and why

 

  • “In Woking’s Image,” in which Mercedes Lackey takes us to a different alien world: Wells’ hometown of Woking during the late 19th century

 

  • “The Tiniest Assassins,” in which Mike Resnick suggests that Wells gets one tiny thing wrong

 

  • The Hugo-winning “The Soul Selects Her Own Society” (the only reprint in this anthology), in which Connie Willis describes the unfortunate encounter between Emily Dickinson and Wells’ Martians 

 

  • Introduction by Robert Silverberg

Enjoy and Happy Reading!
