Stephen Baxter is the pre-eminent SF writer of his generation. Published around the world he has won awards in the UK, US, Germany and Japan. He has written more than twenty novels, published in more than twenty languages and is currently writing the The Long Earth novels with Terry Pratchett.


An enjoyable novel which captures the style and flavour of the original. * THE SOCIALIST WORKER * The Shade of Wells must be applauding. * THE WALL STREET JOURNAL * Massacre is a well thought out and worthy extension of War. * THE BOOK BAG * A Terrific, powerful, hugely-readable novel. * STARBURST * A novel that's both an audacious exercise in alternative history... and a hugely exciting adventure. * SFX * A welcome expansion of the War Of The Worlds story, and one that delights. * SCIFINOW * It's exciting, tense, and more than big and clever enough to be something of a triumph. * SFX * An ingenious work by a perceptive admirer. * TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT * Baxter has cleverly extrapolated Wells' themes and incorporates scientific theories of the day. * FINANCIAL TIMES * Admirers of Wells will find much to like in this affectionate and entertaining tribute. * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH * I can't think of another living writer more deserving of the "official heir of Wells" tag than Baxter. * GUARDIAN * Stephen Baxter, a bright star in the British firmament of science fiction. * THE TIMES * Stephen Baxter is arguably Wells's current representative on Earth. * BBC INSIDE SCIENCE, RADIO 4 *
