"Doyle's Professor Challenger series made the planet and its processes strange again. . . . The strength of Doyle's science fiction lies in its facilitation of an encounter between the reader and the biosphere they inhabit. . . . [and The Lost World
] presents a playful meta-reflection on the genre that gives it its name. . . . Anticipates the windswept tableaux vivants of Jeff VanderMeer's and Chen Qiufan's contemporary climate fiction."–The Los Angeles Review of Books In Praise of 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."
"A huge effort to help define a new era of science fiction."
"An excellent start at showcasing the strange wonders offered by the Radium Age."
