"This is not a scholarly study but an account of a personal engagement with the oeuvre of a great writer who has fallen out of favor with the reading public for many reasons, one of which is that several of his masterworks were almost submerged under a flood of topical, polemical writing intended to have an immediate impact and a short shelf life." (Nicholas Ruddick, Science Fiction Studies, Vol. 48, 2021)
"H. G. Wells: A Literary Life by Adam Roberts is a rich and provocative feast for students of Wells, novice and specialist alike. ... his book represents a significant contribution to our understanding of Wells's genius." (The Wellsian - The Journal of the H. G. Wells Society, Vol. 43, 2020)
