Books of the Week: The Nantucket trilogy.

Although S.M. Stirling’s apparently calling these books (Island in the Sea of Time, Against the Tide of Years, and On the Oceans of Eternity) the Island series. Basic concept: something sends the island of Nantucket back to the Bronze Age. Adventures ensue.

Anyway: I recently replaced my copies of the last two books in the series (they somehow managed to fall into a washing machine), so now I’m rereading them. Good, alt-history/time travel fun.

Looking for something to read? (SM Stirling)

(Today’s writer: S.M. Stirling)

A lot of people love to hate this particular author – and, given his remarkable lack of suffer-fools-gladly, even by the standards of a genre where it’s practically a prerequisite for writing in it, it’s not entirely surprising – but it still remains true that Stirling’s a crackerjack writer. For this one, I’m just going to toss out a few authors & topics: if you’re already interested in any of them, check out the book associated with it.

That should get you started: fair warning; all of those are alternate history.  I’m fond of the genre, you understand.
