Mr. Kevin J. Anderson's Martian War is a fun throwback to those 1950's sci fi movies. The book has HG Wells, T.H. Huxley, Jane Robbins, Dr. Griffin and Dr. Cavor first working towards thwarting the German Kaiser's war plans until Dr. Moreau and Percival Lowell show up with a greater threat, a hostile Martian invasion. The book is told mostly from two different perspectives, the first being HG Wells in London working with T. H. Huxley and the think tank, the second being from Dr. Moreau working with Percival Lowell in the Sahara trying to make contact with Mars. The book goes on to follow Moreau and Lowell from contact, to transporting their terrible discovery to the US and on to London. We also follow Wells, Huxley and Wells girlfriend Jane as they take the fight to the Martians from London, to the moon and to Mars. The book incorporates from most of HG Wells works, especially The First Men In The Moon and does so very well. All in all this is a very fun book. I had a great time reading this book because it reminded me a lot of the old black and white films I would watch on the Saturday creature double feature on T.V. as a kid. I highly recommend this to fans of HG Wells works and Sci/fi fans as well. This book is just pure enjoyment.
