Illustration for article titled Martian Statue Permanently Terrorizes Small English Town

The first Tripod from scifi writer H.G. Wells' mind has a place of honor in the town it destroyed: Woking, England. This War of The Worlds sculpture is certainly a beautiful thing, giving respect and a tip of the hat to great scifi writers from the past. In that same vein, I think there should be a giant sandworm looped in and out of a desert somewhere for Frank Herbert, and an army of robots lined up, terracotta warrior style, as a tribute to Isaac Asimov. Click through for a gallery of pics of the beautiful invading tripod. [Deputy Dog]
