Description
"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."- Tor.com "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
