Summary: “Whenever someone asks me if I believe in heaven and hell, I tell them I don’t know about heaven, but on hell... I’m an expert.” On the eve of World War I, the Martians from the original H.G. Wells classic have returned to finish what they started, but this time humanity is ready. Armed with steam-powered battle machines created from reverse-engineered alien technology, the global defense force A.R.E.S. prepares for the coming conflict as tensions rise in Europe. Captain Eric Wells, an orphan of the first War of the Worlds, commands Earth's newest, most formidable weapon... the colossal battle tripod GOLIATH. Includes new and deleted scenes not included in the film. Based on the award-winning animated film from director Joe Pearson and Tripod Entertainment, starring Adrian Paul, Peter Wingfield, Elizabeth Gracen, Jim Byrnes, Beau Billingslea, Mark Sheppard, and Adam Baldwin. Adapted from the screenplay by David Abramowitz. 2015 Scribe Award Finalist (Best Adapted Novel Category)
