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 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.
