A new S.M. Stirling trilogy, the first book to be published in August 2004.
Perhaps the blurb should mention that these books are set in the world that the island of Nantucket left behind when it became an "Island in the Sea of Time"...
This book will be followed by "The Protector's War" and "A Meeting at Corvallis".
Place for dedication.
Thanks to Nick Pollotta, for a neat idea; to Dana Porter of Outdoorsman, Santa Fe, for advice on cutlery and survival; Stephen Stuebner (author of Cool North Wind and many wonderful books on Idaho) for his works and advice; to the folks at Saluki Bows;
"Far-called our navies melt away
On dune and headland sinks the fire;
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!"
