This is a group of well-written interesting stories tied together by the idea of alien invasion. Meant to honor the tradition of Wells' War of the World, most of the stories in this collection deliver. Michael Scott Bricker opens with a wistful view of post-Martian invasion in his story, "After Welles." "Weird Fruits," by Camilla Alexa is a frightening view of doppels taking over human counterparts reminescent of the body snatchers genre. Vincent L. Scarsella's "Killers," presents a horrific world in which humans are on the run from extraterrestial conquerers and their "killers" - humans put to work in killing their own kind in order to remain alive - with a surprise, chilling ending. "The Virus of Memory," by Gerard Daniel Houarner is another subtle, chilling tale about aliens known as "swarms." Other notable stories include accomplished sci-fi author, Bruce Golden's "Common Time," about an alien musician, "Usher" by Davin Ireland, and many others to make this anthology well worth it's purchase price. Hats off to editor JW Schnarr for another entertaining collection.

Moat of the stories in this book are very good and very enjoyable but, IMHO, very few of them seemed to have anything in common with "The War Of The Worlds". So, I think they missed the mark in that respect but otherwise it's an excellent collection of sci-fi short stories that you'll enjoy. Check it out.
