War Of The Worlds: Global Dispatches; The Martian Invasion of Earth As If Witnessed By Jules Verne, Mark Twain, Emily Dickinson, Henry James, Albert Einstein, Rudyand Kipling, Teddy Roosevelt and many other notables worldwide

New York: Bantam Books, 1996. First edition. Hardcover. First edition/ printing. A very fine, fresh, unread copy (tasteful bookplate front pastedown) in equally fine dust jacket. Hardcover. xi+ 274 pp. Unique, wonderfully imaginative science fiction anthology that used H.G. Wells' tale of Martian invasion as a takeoff point for leading sci-fi modern authors relive Earth's greatest disaster through the eyes of major historical personages from all over the world. For example, in Providence, Rhode Island, 8-year old H.P. Lovecraft bravely seeks communication with an alien intelligence; in Russia, Count Leo Tolstoy describes the coming of the untimate revolution; Albert Einstein finds himself trapped inside a Martian craft in Switzerland; in Amherst, Massachusetts Emily Dickinson leaves poetic evidence that she encountered the Martian eleven years after her death. A total of 19 stories are offered from sci-fi notables such as Barbara Hambly, Robert Silverbergm Mike Resnik, Gregory Bradford and others. Fine / fine. Item #E25818
