The Cephalopods aka Overlords

Yes! My Mars does have room HG Wells' Martians! Now, ahem, in my Mars the cephalopods
were not originally of Mars but from somewhere further out in the Solar System. Mars was simply a jumping off point for Earth. The invasion force was held in stasis until the caretakers
had prepared everything for the War of the Worlds. Now all that is left of the cephalopods
on Mars are the caretakers also known as the Overlords. Two Overlord machines from
Black Hat.

  1. An interesting blending of the various source literature. I have not ventured onto Mars myself, but I have also thought how one would blend the shiny metal constructs of Wells and the almost Bronze Age fantasy splendor of Burroughs. Your answer is elegant and simple.

    Have you considered mixing a little bit of Bradbury in there as well?
