A bespoke hardcover suite of short fictions set after the events of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds

A thrilling, timely anthology of short fictions set after the events of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds in beautiful limited edition foil-and-cloth-bound hardcover!

It is the dawn of the twentieth century. Following the Martians’ failed invasion of Earth, the British Empire has seized their technology and unlocked its secrets for themselves, rolling out new machines and ever more deadly weapons in their quest for dominance.

Editor Ian Edginton presents a rich anthology of new stories about imperialism and corruption in the world of HG Wells’ most famous creation. Including stories by Stephen Baxter, I. N. J. Culbard, Adam Roberts, Emma Beeby, James Lovegrove, Nathan Duck, Mark Morris, Dan Whitehead, Chris Roberson, Maura McHugh, Jonathan Green and Andrew Lane.

Ian Edginton is a New York Times bestselling author and multiple Eisner Award nominee.

His recent titles include the green apocalypse saga The Hinterkind for DC/Vertigo; Steed and Mrs Peel for BOOM, the steam- and clock-punk series Stickleback, Ampney Crucis Investigates and Brass Sun for the legendary UK science fiction weekly, 2000 AD; game properties Dead Space: Liberation and The Evil Within for Titan Books and the audio adventure Torchwood: Army of One for the BBC.

He has adapted the complete canon of Sherlock Holmes novels into a series of graphic novels for Self Made Hero, as well writing several volumes of Holmes apocrypha entitled The Victorian Undead. He has also adapted H. G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds as well as several highly acclaimed sequels, Scarlet Traces and Scarlet Traces: the Great Game.

He lives and works in England. He keeps a Bee.

'A uniquely strange and absorbing body of work' - AV Club (on Scarlet Traces comic)

'A vivid and exciting version of the original story combined with a wonderful sequel' - Starburst Magazine

“a showcase for D’Israeli’s art, every face a moment of peace or panic in a vividly identifiable style, traditional in its framing but radically expressive in the figurework. It’s a very productive friction, beefing up a robust science-fiction air for the Wells adaptation and emphasising the physical impact of Martian war machines, laying waste to pastoral Surrey and ingesting plenty of the population.” - Tripwire (On Scarlet Traces comics)

“A series that increases its dramatic and imaginative scope with every step. It’s clever, accessible, scary, thought-provoking and thrilling, all wrapped up in a beautiful package” - Grovel.org.uk

“A saga over a decade in the making” - Comicon.com

“This is exceptional: scathing socio-political satire made sweet by being British speculative fiction through and through.” - Page 45
