Invaders From Beyond: First Wave


'Alien invasion' is one of the oldest devices in modern science fiction, dating back to Wells’ The War of the Worlds. It spoke to the paranoia of mid-twentieth-century life, spawning such classics as Invasion of theBody Snatchers, Plan 9 From Outer Space and The Thing.

* Perfect for fans of Attack the Block and The World's End, this is alien invasions with a twist. Witty, irreverent, strange and compelling.

* The authors will be taking part in some joint promotional activity, both on the Rebellion website and on other genre sites.

* We will be running a social media campaign focussing on the alien invasion hook, to include paid advertising on Twitter and Facebook.
