Product Details


“Alien invasion juiced up by alternate history, with real people as well…from sci-fi’s Valhalla, the shade of Wells must be applauding. Perhaps with a touch of envy.”–Wall Street Journal

“A highly enjoyable work of homage and extrapolation. Baxter’s chapters are short, sharp shocks, and he cleverly reuses many of Wells’s original characters…[and] regularly offers intertextual winks to readers who know their Wells.”–The Washington Post

“Tightly gripping storytelling [that] reads like a genuine labour of love. I can’t think of another living writer more deserving of the “official heir of Wells” tag than Baxter.” – The Guardian
“The style and tone are spot on…cleverly extrapolates Wells’s themes and incorporates scientific theories of the day.”—Financial Times

“An ingenious work by a perceptive admirer…never less than highly diverting.”–Times Literary Supplement
“A superb sequel…turns the terrific tale Wells told in his time into the foundation of something greater. [A] fitting and filling follow-up to one of science fiction’s great standard-bearers.”–
“An audacious exercise in alternative history…and a hugely exciting adventure.”—SFX Magazine

“Very much a tribute to HG Wells…a wholly unexpected treat of a sequel.”—SF Crowsnest

“Surprisingly thoughtful…[a] page-turning novel that pays homage to the original story but then enhances it.” – SFFWorld
