To those of us who survived it, the First Martian War of the early twentieth century was a cataclysm. And yet, to minds far greater than our own and older even that the Martians, minds who regard our world from the cold outer reaches of space, that conflict must have seemed a trivial affair indeed, and unworthy.

It has been 14 years since the Martians invaded England. The world has moved on, always watching the skies but content that we know how to defeat the Martian menace.

Machinery looted from the abandoned capsules and war-machines has led to technological leaps forward. The Martians are vulnerable to earth germs. The Army is prepared. So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to one man, Walter Jenkins, the narrator of Wells' book.

He is sure that the Martians have learned, adapted, understood their defeat. He is right. Thrust into the chaos of a new invasion, a journalist - sister-in-law to Walter Jenkins - must survive, escape and report on the war. The Massacre of Mankind has begun.

Authorised by the H.G. Wells estate, this is a terrifying brilliant sequel to Wells’ masterpiece The War of the Worlds, written by one of the greatest contemporary science fiction writers.

Author Stephen Baxter once dreamed of walking amongst the stars, having applied to be a cosmonaut in the early 1990’s. The loss to space exploration is fiction’s gain as Baxter has gone on to become of Britain’s most consistently inventive, prolific and successful science fiction writers penning more than forty novels and over a hundred short stories. Amongst his best-known works are dystopian classics Flood and Ark, space odysseys Proxima and Ultima as well as popular series the Manifold Trilogy, Xeelee, Destiny’s Children and the NASA Trilogy. He has also worked in notable collaborations for his Long Earth series, written with Terry Pratchett and various novels with Arthur C. Clarke including The Light of Other Days.
