In Ward Moore's Bring The Jubilee, time travel happens at a place called Haggerwells.
In Doctor Who, the TARDIS had a Victorian passenger called Herbert.
In Elliot S. Maggin's Miracle Monday, a time traveler is called Kristin Wells.
In Poul Anderson's There Will Be Time, one of the mutant time travelers gave the time travel idea to a young English writer...
In CS Lewis' That Hideous Strength, the Director of the National Institute for Coordinated Experiment is a Cockney...

Five references to HGW and, if it were not so late, I might think of more.

Addendum: "Herbert" and the writer are the real deal.

Kaor, Paul!

Darn! I've read the texts by Moore, Anderson, and Lewis, but missed the allusions or possible allusions to Wells.
