About the Author
E. V. Odle (1890-1942) was a Bloomsbury-adjacent magazine editor in London.
"An excellent example of the promise of the Radium Age series, giving deserved attention to a hilarious and prescient work of science fiction that has almost been forgotten."
--Shelf Awareness

"Fluidity versus fixedness as markers of peace versus conflict is a strikingly resonant argument to find in a novel that's just under a century old, and it more than justifies time spent in the company of The Clockwork Man."
--The Los Angeles Review of Books

About the Radium Age Series:

"Joshua Glenn's admirable Radium Age series [is] devoted to early- 20th-century science fiction and fantasy."
-- The Washington Post

"Long live the Radium Age."
-- The Los Angeles Times

"It's an attractive crusade. [...] Glenn's project is well suited to providing an organizing principle for an SF reprint line, to the point where I'm a little surprised that I can't think of other similarly high-profile examples of reprint-as-critical-advocacy. "
--The Los Angeles Review of Books

"Neglected classics of early 20th-century sci-fi in spiffily designed paperback editions."
--The Financial Times

"New editions of a host of under-discussed classics of the genre."

"Shows that 'proto-sf' was being published much more widely, alongside other kinds of fiction, in a world before it emerged as a genre and became ghettoised."
--BSFA Review

"A huge effort to help define a new era of science fiction."
--Transfer Orbit

"An excellent start at showcasing the strange wonders offered by the Radium Age."
--Maximum Shelf
