About

About the Book:

War of the Worlds: The Future Attacks is a mashup novel written by H.G. Wells and Joseph Bridges with illustrations by John Gannon Commissions and Concepts. I wondered what would have happened if Victorian England was attacked not by Martians, but invaders from the future who are trying to "help" their creators create robots and androids earlier because they dont feel that they were invented early enough. This is an odd concept that blends the staunchy Victorian thoughts of the our protaganist, a writer and philosopher himself, as he is recounting his adventures of the invasion. 

The book is completely done and simply needs to be printed and sent to your doorstep. The funds we are trying to raise will go toward getting several ISBNs (This is a book code used by retailers to identify books. We need one for every edition i.e paperback, hardcover, deluxe, ebook and so forth), printing, taxes, and some marketing. If this Kickstarter project is funded, these books will be available to the general public through traditional brick and mortar stores in paperback and hardcover as well as popular online shops and also for nearly everyone in the world with an e-reader (Kindle, Nook, IPad, and so forth). Exclusively for this project, you can obtain a signed copy by both the author Joseph Bridges and the cover illustrator John Gannon in the LIMITED numbered deluxe edition. (Sorry, H.G. Wells died in 1946 and couldn't be contacted to lend his signature.) These books will be printed under the independent publisher imprint Ockam's Razor Books of Dayton, Ohio.
