So, is this teasing a new setting ...?

H.G. Wells, okay - but "Worlds United" sounds like a Kurd Lasswitz spin on it ...

Teasing an already-announced setting (from July)... 50's-esque pulp sci-fi.  Explicitly not "hard" sci-fi to out modern perspective (because 50s pulp).

Worlds United: (Pulp SF, 128 pages, John Snead) - Rockets and Ray Guns in a pulp 1950s, with civilizations on Mars and Venus, and mining out in the asteroid belt

Worlds United is alternate 1950s Pulp SF/Planetary Romance. John Carter, Doc Savage, Clarke Ashton Smith, Jack Vance, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, When Worlds Collide, both HG Wells and George Pal War of the Worlds, and much, much more.

are a million to one," he said.

Didn't Terry Pratchett say something like "million to one chances happen nine times out of ten"?

Nice ... I must confess that I'll probably give it a pass, since I have so much unplayed retro-sf already on m shelf - Space 1889, Rocket Age and now Odd Soot ... but still good to see that Mythras keeps expanding its scope.

"Ooh-lah"?  :)

It had been becades since I heard Jeff Wayne’s album in high school.  But “ULA” reads too much like an academic institution.  😉
