This is a gripping adventure story as well as a historic milestone in modern science fiction. - Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 782-86. "The last and most complex [of Wells's early scientific romances] is The First Men in the Moon. The two first men, Bedford and Cavor are well- contrasted, the civilization of the Selenites is excellent both as horror and satire; and the novel abounds with wonderful passages of unforced description at which Wells is unrivaled. This lovely book also contains much of Wells's delightful humor; it has kept the joints of his discourse oiled to this day. After the First Men in the Moon, Wells's science fiction novels are never quite the same. " - Bleiler (ed) Science Fiction Writers, p. 28.
