War of the Worlds Adaptation Retro Science Fiction Novel (The Last Days of Thunder Child)

The "Last Days of Thunder Child" by C.A. Powell, is a pastiche story from H.G. Wells's War of the Worlds; It shows us the original story from the fresh perspective of the ship's crew.

Here's an interview with author C.A. Powell: What's the novel about? 

Powell: The story takes place on board a small Victorian battleship cruising around the coast. They get semaphore reports but can't believe the communications they are getting. The only hear stories can see the huge and unusual amount of shipping. Being aboard a boat allows the reader to stay detached from the situation for a long time and cling to normality. However, all the time there is the knowledge of realization of an approaching doom. How did you come up with this idea? 

Powell: It started from an idea at a writing class --an exercise, and I developed it from there. I live close to Maldon in Essex, UK, and like early Victorian ironclads. Plus H.G. Wells's War of the Worlds is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels. What did you like about War of the Worlds in particular?

Powell: The mayhem and uprooting of everyday life. It is suddenly vanquished for an apocalyptic world overnight. THe social normalit of things vanish and survivors have to adapt or perish. What's the most challenging part of writing a sci-fi novel?

Powell: Trying to view a world completely different from the one we live in yet moving through the story with your own values and conditioned social beliefs.
