I doubt this was intentional, but still...the outfit that Gullivar Jones wears in the second volume reminded me a lot of a Fremen stillsuit, complete with a gasmask and Arab-inspired robe/burnoose combo. Combined with the various Middle-Eastern motifs in the Mars scenes (hell, the book opens with Gullivar riding a flying carpet), it seems more than a little bit reminiscent of ''Franchise/{{Dune}}''. Then again, if TheInvisibleMan and Creator/HGWells' [[Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds martians]] both exist in the same universe around this time, it's a pretty safe bet that TheTimeMachine exists as well. It's entirely possible that one or more of the characters could have used it to visit the future that Frank Herbert described in the Franchise/{{Dune}} books. And Gullivar and John Carter ''did'' mention the Molluscs performing genetic experiments during their time on Mars. Maybe the Sandworms are the descendants of one of these experiments.
* The existence of the TheTimeMachine was confirmed in the Story Allan and the Sundered Veil, in which he fights alongside Allan against [[spoiler: Lovecraft's Great Old Ones]], so the theory definitely works.

* '''The Cobbs''' are a big-name underworld family who have spawned more than a few notable thieves and crooks over the years. The family line includes [[Film/{{Following}} a psychotic London burglar]]; [[Film/{{Inception}} Dominic]], a renowned American corporate thief who was known for his skill with dream-sharing technology; a [[WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow senile old man]] that tells wild stories; and [[Series/{{Firefly}} Jayne]], a feared mercenary who racked up some major charges fighting the Alliance in the 25th century. Jayne helped legitimize the family name after he went legit and entered the military, and one of his distant descendants eventually [[Series/DoctorWho served as a general in]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E6TheDoctorsDaughter a war against the alien Hath]]. An earlier heroic (but still rebellious in spirit) member of the family was [[MsMarvel a pioneering female aviator]] in the mid-20th century.
