A new S.M. Stirling novel, to be published in 2003.

Perhaps the blurb should mention that this book is set in an alternate world where the Europeans never conquered the Americas, and there is a "gate" between our California and the alternate California. An agent for the Department of Fish and Game stumbles upon this secret, and the adventures can begin...



Place for dedication.



To Jerry Pournelle, for advice and assistance; Giovanni Spinella, for help with Sicilian dialect; Greg Saunders, for local knowledge of LA; to the Critical Mass, for continuing massively helpful criticism.

(add rest)

All faults, errors, infelicities and lapses are my own.

And a special acknowledgement to the author of Niven's Law:

"There is a technical, literary term for those who mistake the opinions and beliefs of characters in a novel for those of the author.

The term is "idiot".
