The War Of The Worlds continues.... The terror of the coming of the Martians is all but a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time.
All George wants is a quiet suburban life – but at breakfast one morning his newspaper reports the shocking discovery of a Martian cylinder, found intact and unopened, and carefully transported to London. Could it be from the first alien invasion and after more than seven years are there Martians still alive inside?
By teatime George learns that vengeance seeking Martians and their tripod fighting machines are already on their way back. This time they are armed with a doomsday weapon, able to destroy all bacteria and completely annihilate Earth. The countless numbers of their projectiles form a huge green comet and invasion day will be just before Christmas.
The first attack by aliens was enough for any lifetime, but who would expect to be involved with two? Can George and his wife escape this new Martian apocalypse and how will our planet survive a second time? The Day Of The Martians continues the iconic Mars novel by H.G. Wells, in this exciting action adventure – the first volume of The Martian Diaries science fiction series.

The first volume in this sequel to The War Of The Worlds was originally imagined purely as an audio with bespoke music and sound effects. For that purpose, the chapters were written in visual scenes' some of which are quite short, as the music was designed to create setting and atmosphere. For this reason you will find The Day Of The Martians a quick read of under two hours. The next two volumes in the series are much longer and in comparison they are each more than double the length of volume one. However it was always the author's intention to closely follow H.G. Wells’ style and storyline.
