H.G.Wells is mentioned in the article Changes on the Moon's Surface (Nature, 1902), because of the many reports of William H. Pickering, the dedicated telescopic observer of the moon and his curious claims (observations of so-called changes on the moon's surface) which could have inspired H.G.Wells, who wrote fantastic stories such as The First Men In The Moon, see also page 255 in W.P.Sheehan's and T.A.Dobbins's Epic Moon; a history of lunar exploration in the age of the telescope.
