The War of the Worlds: The Untold StoryThis month we bring you The War of the Worlds: The Untold Story by Ron N. Butler, based on the original novel by H. G. Wells, performed live at Dragon Con, September 1, 2013.

Making the decision to commission Ron to write this adaptation wasn’t easy. We’d sworn for years that despite our many adaptations, including a bunch by H. G. Wells, that we would never do this one. It seemed too risky to try to follow in the footsteps of St. Orson Welles.

But in the end, the allure of commemorating the 75th anniversary of the most famous radio broadcast of all time proved too much for us, and so we went for it. We think the result was very much worth it. Be sure to let us know what YOU think!
