Veteran InMonster Mark Gardner is about to release a new project, but he needs your help. He’s co-authored a sequel to the H.G. Wells classic, The War of the Worlds, with John Rust, and they’ve got a Kickstarter going to fund the indie release.
Some things I find particularly exciting:
- This is one of those posted-on-a-fanfic-site-and-people-loved-it stories. Now it’s going to be a real book on paper.
- According to the Kickstarter page, this is the first War of the Worlds sequel to come out after Wells’ copyright termination. Oooo.
- There is going to be an audiobook, and you can get it WITH THE EBOOK TOO for a donation of about $25, which is a very good deal.
- They aren’t asking for much, and they’re only $40 away from their goal right now. There are 13 days left. It’s SO CLOSE.
I have no skin in this game (they are not sponsoring this blog, haha), but it seems like a really exciting project, so I hope you’ll check it out.
