Stories inspired by H.G. Wells, the Master of Science Fiction!
Imagine an army of Invisible Men trained to take on a Martian invasion, a Victorian astronaut discovering a world of lunar beasts, or the fate of mankind resting upon a machine that travels through time. These are just some of the brilliant stories included in the two volume anthology A Tribute to H.G. Wells, Stories Inspired by the Master of Science Fiction!
This one-of-a-kind two volume anthology features traditional science-fiction stories blended with one or more tales from H.G. Wells including:
- The War of the Worlds
- The Island of Dr. Moreau
- The First Men in the Moon
- The Time Machine
- The Invisible Man
- The Country of the Blind
- The Crystal Egg
- And many more!!
Volume 1 contains stories inspired by Wells most renowned classic, The War of the Worlds. Experience the Martian invasion as seen from grizzled veterans, terrified lovers, desperate school children; and by intellects vast, cool and unsympathetic; from the Wild West to an Underworld of Fiction, and finally to the war's apocalyptic aftermath.
Volume 2 contains stories inspired by his great work including The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and many more!
Selenites walk side-by-side with beasts padding uncomfortably along on two legs. We see, or do not see, invisible men scattering before lumbering tripods as we soar upwards into space, and hurtle ourselves through time. There are utopias… and there are underworlds. A Dark and Beautiful Future indeed.
