- Yes, sort of.Howard Waldrop did a wonderful short one-off called "Night of the Cooters" which is not so much a sequel as a parallel account of his imagining what wd have happened if the Martians had landed in rural Texas. Short version: a Texas sheriff is a match for any space aliens.There was also a collection inspired by this, where different authors did their own takes on how the invasion might have played out around the world; I think it was called WAR OF THE WORLDS: GLOBAL DISPATCHES. As I remember, it had the Waldrop in it but otherwise nothing memorable.There's also a terrible novel-length Sherlock Holmes & Professor Challenger team-up to fight the Martians. I forget the author; it was mainly memorable for the depiction of Mrs. Hudson as a blue-eyed blonde knock-out who falls into Sherlock's arms every time Dr. Watson leaves the room.But I do admit to a fondness for Jeff Wayne's concept album; Richard Burton does a great job as The Narrator.--John R.On May 6, 2011, at 6:44 PM, dale nelson wrote:
- Yes, as David says, it's a great story. The closing sentence is particularly memorable -- but there's no way to share it with anyone without spoiling the story. It's not that often I call something a masterpiece, but "The Ugly Chickens" is one.--John R.On May 9, 2011, at 8:23 AM, Mem Morman wrote:
