Tripe Cop by thomastapir Tripe Cop by thomastapir
A stalwart English "mountie" patrols the blasted moors of Somerset in an agile conveyance derived from relict Martian technology. One hundred years after the failed Invasion immortalized by Wells, the English countryside is still polluted by foul alien vegetation and pitted with scars left by the vile Martian landing craft and war machines.

BEST MEMORIAL INSCRIPTION EVER!1!

Man, I love how he reversed that in Martian Chronicles--we go to Mars and they STILL die of chicken pox! Apparently you can't win for losing if you're a Martian. :(

I read a comic once about a sort of alternate post-Invasion early 20th century...Details are sketchy now, but I do remember that the coup de grace involved the humans "raising the Union Jack at the summit of Olympus Mons," which kind of hit me in the gut! I was aiming for something a little more dystopian here--well, from the humans' POV, at least. : p

It reminds me of a story idea I had about a colonized earth breaking free of the Martian Yoke.
