Life after the War of the Worlds. The narrator contends with his PTSD while detailing all we have learned from the corpses and wreckage of our would-be destoryers. Important questions can finally be answered, but more important are the chilling questions the aftermath asks.

I hope you have enjoyed listening to my adaptation of Herbert George Wells' The War of the Worlds. This has been a passion project of mine and I'm so happy to be able have recorded, proofed, edited, mastered and freely shared with you my interpretation of this astonishing book. Science fiction has brought me so much relief and joy when depressed, and it would not be what it is without this book. Thank you Mr. Wells.

Two weeks gnawing on rotten food, bones, and alien plants, and then the first person you meet is this guy.

A fascinating episode that reminds me of the detailed plans for a new human order in George Orwell's 1984.

The rapid shift between elation and grim, depressed disappointment, plays a significant role in driving the narrator mad and towards suicidal thoughts which will pay off in the remaining couple of chapters.

In which out hero eats and drinks increasingly unpalatable things as maddness sets in.

The War of the Worlds gets dark, dude.

Do you need a voice actor to recount eating revolting things with a weary, grim resolution?

Oh sorry, didn't you know he was a murderer?

Sometimes it's good when a chapter title tells you something specific and important is going to happen.

A chapter title can be part of the story in this way, the reveal not in the prose but the title.

The build up to something you now know is going to happen can be a rush.

It's the same anticipation of when a roller coaster ratchets you slowly towards its peak before the inevitable drop. It's the entire concept behind Alton Towers' Oblivion.

It's a different kind of thrill, but it's a thrill no less.

This was one of my favourite chapters to do because I totally forgot I'd already proofed it when I sat down to do that.

So far the Narrator has been a fairly blank slate, allowing us to project ourselves onto him so we can experience the martian invasion more personally, like the original Doom Guy.

Here though, it's quite striking how much the narrator's hatred for weakness, ill-discipline and inaction comes through the longer he spends with the curate.

I get the distinct feeling these are Wells' own dislikes coming through, as much as him just giving personality to his protagonist. What do you think?

Bonus Victorian Sexism Points to Wells for comparing the Curate to "a silly woman."

This chapter is one of the possibly more niche reasons why I love science fiction so much. A detailed explaination of weird, horrifying alien biology.

As the story progresses, the narrator tells us all that we have learned about the martians' bodies in the years following the war from the corpses they left behind. These are the specific descriptions of the martians that informed the one of the merch designs on our Redbubble page: FineArtGeek.redbubble.com. Check it out and see how it compares with the image conjured in your mind.
