We are delighted to be able to share with you the cover for Stephen Baxter’s stunning sequel to War of the Worlds, The Massacre of Mankind. This authorised sequel to War of the Worlds picks up 14 years after the Martian invasion. The stunning cover was designed by Blacksheep.
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, 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, Julia Elphinstone – a journalist, a veteran of the first martian war and sister-in-law to Walter Jenkins – must survive, escape and report on the war.
The Massacre of Mankind has begun.
The Massacre of Mankind will be available in hardback, ebook and audio download on the 26th January 2017. See the amazing cover and enter to win a copy of The Massacre of Mankind by filling in the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck.
