So, the big news at this time is that the UK copyright on War of the Worlds expired on 31 December 2016. That means that the audio production of the original novel can commence, and looks like being released sometime around April/May this year. You can find details here. As one of the Kickstarter backers on this project, I’m excited!

Also, there is a sequel that’s been released, by Stephen Baxter, called The Massacre of Mankind. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but having read his followup to The Time Machine, I an looking forward to it.

And of course, Ironclad Games is pushing ahead with All Quiet, so go to their website here to find out more.

All in all, it’s looking good for War of the Worlds this year!
