The Massacre of Mankind
Sequel to The War of the Worlds
Authorized by the H.G. Wells Estate
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By Stephen Baxter
Publisher: Crown Publishing | Penguin Random House
Release date: August 22, 2017

Though H.G. Wells‘s The War of the Worlds might not have been the first story to feature Martians coming to Earth, it certainly is the most popular one and has been held up over the years as the ultimate Martian invasion tale. The story, first serialized in magazines in 1897 and then published as a novel in 1898, went on to yield various TV, radio, and film adaptations. Now, with the authorization of the H.G. Wells Estate, Crown Publishing brings us the official sequel with The Massacre of Mankind.

In The Massacre of Mankind: Sequel to The War of the Worlds, author Stephen Baxter picks up 14 years after the infamous Martian invasion on England that introduced the world to the aggressive aliens and their massive three-legged “tripod” fighting-machines. After learning the biological weaknesses of their invaders and studying their technologies, humans are confident now that they can combat any future extraterrestrial onslaught, however unlikely they believe that event may be.

War Of The Worlds: The Anglo-Martian War of 1895
Dark Series Book 9
Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Mike Brunton
Illustrated by Alan Lathwell
Osprey Publishing
Release Date: November 17th, 2015

“This is a history of that short, cruel, and genocidal war, reconstructed from the perspective of the surviving human defenders…. There are no Martian accounts or documents of any kind about the Invasion. Not a single recognizable account or record was ever recovered from the Cylinders or the Martians’ remarkable machines.”

Osprey Publishing, whose tomes usually delve deeply into military history with such works as Railway Guns of World War II, and Vietnam: A View from the Front Lines, has another less non-fiction subset of their company. Osprey Adventures combines the real and unreal into a fun little book, complete with glorious illustrations, and tons of factual fiction. Their Dark Series has produced their next book, War Of The Worlds: The Anglo-Martian War of 1895 by Mike Brunton.
