Since its publication in 1898, H.G. Wells’ classic alien invasion novel The War Of The Worlds has inspired countless adaptations, homages, and imitations…but never a continuation. Well, not an official one, that is. But with the blessing of The H.G. Wells Estate, writer Stephen Baxter has done exactly that with The Massacre Of Mankind (hardcover, digital). Though in talking to Baxter about this novel, it seems he’s pretty aware of those unofficial sequels.
