The Martians Are Here (TMAH) started out life on the internet as a blog with daily entries on the adventures of the main character at the time, mickey. In late 2009 Stefan the author contacted Rick, a musician near Seattle to produce a theme tune. By early 2010 this was expanded to reading the story and TMAH was born. Episodes 1-8 are produced largely in a read format but past episode 8 the ‘read’ format was replaced by a fully dramatised one with musical scores tailored to individual scenes and later on even sound effects. The series was completed a year later (with 34 chapters). In May 2011 Stefan approached Rick to do an updated version, one that is consistent in sound quality all the way, as well as to add new scenes and cover material that wasn’t covered in the original version. To be released late in october as “Rose of Mars”.
