On signale une interview de Stephen Baxter ici en anglais à propos de son nouveau bouquin de science fiction... C'est la suite de la Guerre des Mondes.

It was 120 years ago that H. G. Wells’s “The War of the Worlds,” about a Martian invasion of Earth, appeared as a magazine serial. (In the United States, the story was rolled out in Cosmopolitan.) Nearly 80 years ago, a radio dramatization of the novel caused “a wave of mass hysteria,” according to The New York Times, among some listeners who didn’t know the terrifying scenario was fiction. Now, Stephen Baxter has written a sequel, “The Massacre of Mankind,” authorized by Wells’s estate. (Baxter is the author of dozens of science-fiction books, and, even more pertinently, a vice president of the H.G. Wells Society.) His book was published in Britain earlier this year, where The Guardian said: “It’s Baxter’s best novel in a long time, and this may be because it reads like a genuine labor of love.” Below, Baxter talks about the evolution of Wells’s original story, his own childhood love of science fiction and more.
