Overview

Three classic science fiction adventure novels

H. G. Wells brought his immortal 'War of the Worlds' to a conclusion with the defeat of the Martian invaders destroyed by the smallest of earth creatures-the bacteria. The aliens may have failed to dominate the earth, but they left it devastated. Serviss picked up the tale where Wells left off and penned 'Edison's Invasion of Mars'-his unauthorised sequel based on a simple principle-IT'S PAYBACK TIME! The men of Earth decide to take the battle to the Red Planet itself in this thrilling space fantasy which will be essential reading for anyone for whom the original was just not enough. In the second novel, 'A Columbus of Space' the action turns to the planet Venus. A reluctant crew rocket through space to a strange world complete with Amazon women, apemen and giant man-eating spiders-all essential ingredients for a vintage space romp. In 'The Moon Metal', a unique and incredibly precious metal is being secretly mined and released to an eager world market. But where is this mine and why is it such a closely guarded secret? Perhaps its origin is not of this world! Those who enjoy science fantasy from the period that brought forth the Edgar Rice Burroughs stories of interplanetary adventure will find many enjoyable pages to turn in this collection of vintage SF greats.
