Frontlines - now live!

War of the Worlds:Frontlines is now available from the awesome Northern Frights Publishing.

'No one would have believed that in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched...

These words marked the beginning of H.G. Well's classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds...and marked the end of man's child-like belief that we are alone in the universe. Published in 1898, The War of the Worlds is one of the greatest works of science fiction ever written, and it cemented H.G. Wells' legacy as a founding father of science fiction.

A 1938 radio play by Orson Welles caused mass panic when it hit the airwaves, and frankly we haven't been able to trust aliens ever since.

Here now, are bold new visions of Alien and Human conflicts on many different fronts.'

  1. This looks pretty cool. I think I'm gonna have to check it out. I read Eric Brown's zombification of War of the Worlds and always loved the original and all (well most) of the movie versions...heck, I even had a audio version of it on an album when I was a kid, heh. So a bunch of short stories using that theme sounds like a pretty good bet!

  2. Same here - I had the musical version on double-gatefold LP by Jeff Lynne as well :)
    There's another collection from NFP on the way based on 'The Time Machine' as well which I think I may have loved even more than 'WOTW'!
