Edison's Conquest of Mars is an 1898 science fiction novel by American astronomer and writer Garrett P. It was written as a sequel to Fighters from Mars, an unauthorized and heavily altered version of H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds. It has a place in the history of science fiction for its early employment of themes and motifs that later became staples of the genre.

"Edison's Conquest of Mars" is an interesting and fairly enjoyable psycho-sequel to the H.G. Wells classic The War of the Worlds and, more accurately, a direct sequel to "Fighters from Mars", which was a blatant rewrite of "War of the Worlds". This 1898 book was mentioned on a satirical site I like as introducing many Sci-Fi first, including alien abductions, spacesuits, and a host of other themes that were ahead of its time (confirmed by checking a popular "Wiki" site, for all that's worth).

No plot spoilers from me: The story is told from the perspective of an unnamed associate of Thomas Edison and takes place immediately following a devastating attack on Earth from the Martians. While not overly action packed and having some obviously faulty science (in retrospect), it is amazing to me how much the author got right. It also, as is evident in the title, venerates Thomas Edison (who was very much alive when the book was published) as the main hero of the story.

It does suffer from the attitudes of the time regarding race and nationalism that might not sit right with all readers, but taken at face value it is quite an imaginative and entertain tale. It should be reiterated that this is not a true sequel to "War of the Worlds", so the Martians are notably different than those Wells portrayed.

This is a worthy read for the many firsts and the story actually stands on its own, without having to read "Fighters from Mars" first.


This is recommended not so much for story, which is mildly enjoyable, but for the sake of its historical novelty. Written in 1889, the science is quaintly outdated, which to me made it worthwhile reading in itself. Though the Martians had hundreds of years of technological superiority over humans, Serviss did not predict that they would have mastered wireless communication nor heavier than air flight. Earth manages heavier than air flight, but not by propulsion and craft designed to maximize lift, but by electric repulsion, or scientific garbledegook.
in which good old Edison invents several space ship technologies, builds spaceships, loads the best men in the resulting ships and goes Martian hunting after the events of War of the Worlds. This odd juxtaposition of drawing room and laboratory quality people suddenly getting up the nerve to go into the field using largely untested technologies is definitely from a previous era. They make it all happen in only 18 months.

Tesla I would believe. Edison? Not so much.
The book met my expectations, but it definitely isn't for everyone. Fans of "historical" sci-fi will love it 'This is where we came from.' This allows you to see the transition from Godzilla to Alien in book format.
It's interesting to see how much writing styles have changed since this was written. It's fun if you don't take it too seriously. It was supposed to be an unauthorized sequel to War of the Worlds, it's very loosely connected, so don't expect too much there.
This is such a strange book that it's definitely worth reading at least once. It's a rip-off/sequel to War Of The Worlds and it's not particularly well written yet somehow I couldn't put it down.
Best West
The Edison in this story is Thomas Edison. Other great scientific contemporaries join him in Earth's retaliation against the Martian's attack of H.G. Well's famed "War of the Worlds".
Interesting to read a sci fy book written from an old world perspective
