Through Space And Time With Wells And Anderson
Wells' Martians invaded Earth, where they lacked immunity to Terrestrial micro-organisms, whereas humanity interacts with many extraterrestrial species for good or ill in Anderson's works.
Wells wrote one volume of future history whereas Anderson wrote several future history series.
Wells' single Time Traveller explored the remote future and returned to the nineteenth century whereas many Andersonian characters make complicated journeys backwards and forwards through past and future time.
However, even the simplest example of time travel gets complicated as I will show in the next post.
