Can’t Wait Wednesday - Scarlet Traces edited by Ian Edginton

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

Scarlet Traces: A War of the Worlds Anthology edited by Ian Edginton
Expected publication: September 3, 2019

A thrilling, timely anthology of short fictions set after the events of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds in beautiful limited edition foil-and-cloth-bound hardcover!

It is the dawn of the twentieth century. Following the Martians’ failed invasion of Earth, the British Empire has seized their technology and unlocked its secrets for themselves, rolling out new machines and ever more deadly weapons in their quest for dominance.

Editor Ian Edginton presents a rich anthology of new stories about imperialism and corruption in the world of HG Wells’ most famous creation. Including stories by Stephen Baxter, I. N. J. Culbard, Adam Roberts, Emma Beeby, James Lovegrove, Nathan Duck, Mark Morris, Dan Whitehead, Chris Roberson, Maura McHugh, Jonathan Green and Andrew Lane.

I'm a sucker for new takes on the alien invasion classic, and this would be worth reading for Baxter and Lovegrove alone.
