Multi-volume, science-fiction author H.E. Wilburson introduces us to his audio book The Day of the Martians:
The terror of the coming of the Martians has become a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time. It is now 1913 and the cosy, suburban life of the writer from H G Wells' iconic 'The War Of The Worlds' descends again into a Martian nightmare. A cylinder from the previous invasion has been unearthed in Wales, intact and completely sealed from the Earth's atmosphere, then transported to London for no apparent reason. It is unclear whether there are Martians still alive inside it after more than a decade.
The situation worsens. Ogilvy the astronomer reveals that in three months, the Martians are set to invade in vast numbers, just before Christmas. Having learned hard lessons about deadly bacteria, the Martians are set on the conquest of our planet.
On a hunch, the writer takes his wife with him to Mount Tryfan in Wales where they make a surprising discovery, but is it significant? With no realistic defence against Martian tripods and heat rays, the government has no choice and adopts the writer's plan. But time is short, too short. Only a single hope now stands in the way of total oblivion and The Day of the Martians…
The Day of the Martians by H.E. Wilburson is a sequel to The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
This audio book was so much fun! I loved it! The story kept me on the edge of my kindle for the entire tale. The narration and the sound effects were top notch. I felt like I was transported into the past and was witnessing these events myself. The power of the audio book is quite amazing. The enjoyment factor is high!
As the sequel to such a famous story it was handled quite well and felt so organic to the original story.
I give The Day of the Martians 5 STARS! I loved it and so will you!
I am very happy to report that there are two more stories coming: “The Lake on the Moon” and “Gateway to Mars”. Thank you, Mr. Wilburson.
