Thunder Child v The Martian Tripods



Read the exciting science fiction adaptation of HMS Thunder Child. The Victorian ironclad from H.G. Wells War of the Worlds.

Follow the crew as the ship cruises towards her ominous appointment with destiny.

Witness the crew’s disbelief as they receive semaphore messages of such incredible descriptions. Reports that many think they are for a mock training exercise. That is until they see an alien edifice for the first time.

Then the realization that Queen Victoria’s glorious and all-powerful British Empire is vanquished in one foul swoop by huge tripod fighting machines is realized. 
Be there, as the Thunder Child's valiant crew confront the Martian Fighting machines.

Live the final moments when the Captain gives the order to confront the dreadful monstrosities to save the fleeing paddle steamer crammed with desperate refugees.

Read the sci-fi pastiche:

The Last Days of Thunder Child
                                       By
                               C.A. Powell



A pastiche novel set in the War of the Worlds imaginary Victorian time of a Martian invasion. The reader goes aboard H.M.S. Thunder Child - the fictitious ship that must confront the alien tripod fighting machines. Read the build up as you cruise with the crew, in the days leading up to the confrontation.

The old retro science fiction adventure is brought back with the new steampunk adaptation of an old Victorian ironclad destined to burn her way into the history of SciFi lover's imaginations and echo through the eternity of such minds.
