The Massacre of Mankind. Authorised Sequel to the War of the Worlds - Stephen Baxter - opis książki:
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 "Stephen Baxter is arguably Wells s current representative on Earth." BBC Inside Science, Radio 4 Stephen Baxter, a bright star in the British firmament of science fiction. THE TIMES I can t think of another living writer more deserving of the "official heir of Wells" tag than Baxter. GUARDIAN Baxter has cleverly extrapolated Wells themes and incorporates scientific theories of the day. FINANCIAL TIMES It s exciting, tense, and more than big and clever enough to be something of a triumph. SFX A welcome expansion of the War Of The Worlds story, and one that delights. SCIFINOW A novel that s both an audacious exercise in alternative history... and a hugely exciting adventure. SFX A Terrific, powerful, hugely-readable novel. STARBURST Massacre is a well thought out and worthy extension of War. THE BOOK BAG
