I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share with you the cover for the upcoming anthology, War of the Worlds: Battleground Australia, featuring sixteen stories by some fantastic Australian and New Zealand SF, crime and spec-fic writers!
Battleground Australia was conceived and edited by Horror Australis – the collective moniker for Steve Proposch, Christopher Sequeira and Bryce Stevens – and explores how the Martian invasion first imagined by HG Wells affected the other side of the world!
Movie director Alex Proyas (The Crow, I Robot, Gods of Egypt) has written and introduction and the stories are illustrated by Jan Scherpenhuizen and Sholto Turner.
War of the Worlds: Battleground Australia will be released in hard cover, paperback and eBook.
The stories, set in Australia of the past, present and future, are by Kerry Greenwood, Carmel Bird, Jack Dann, Janeen Webb, Sean Williams, Angela Meyer, Lindy Cameron, Jenny Valentish, Narrelle M Harris, Lucy Sussex, Rick Kennett, Jason Franks, Dmetri Kakmi, Bill Congreve, Jason Fischer, and Kaaron Warren.
