AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A man tracks down the last surviving Martian in the wastes of Antarctica, hidden away since the original invasion, far from the bacteria which doomed its kind. The purpose of his quest is to understand the mystery - the 'why' of the Martian invasion - and to learn the identity of the true invaders. A satisfying conclusion to this collection, which builds upon and adds to Wells' great novel, as all good sequels should.'
