    The world was a frightening place for Americans in 1938. And, when some of them took a break fromtheir regular radio show and spun the dial to hear a live broadcast of a Martian invasion, complete with an address from the government and details on how to evacuate New York, some panicked.

    How many, exactly, we don't know. Newspapers were full of tales of suicide, hospitalisation, shock and lawsuits. Yet most of these stories proved impossible to verify.

    Still, in honour of the gullible few who believed that tentacled, fanged, bear-snake creatures were invading the United States, we are drinking an Act of Violets, a floral affair created by Blighty's Ryan "Mr Lyan" Chetiyawardana.
