Bayley’s Bookshelf - Great Audiobooks

Ch 2: What We Saw from the Ruined House • The War of the Worlds audiobook • Book 2

May 10, 2021

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: Check it out and see how it compares with the image conjured in your mind.
