Book 1 of S.M. Stirling's series "The Lords of Creation", published by Tor in November 2006.

Perhaps the blurb should mention that these books are set in a world where the old pulps' visions of Mars and Venus are more or less true...

This book will be followed by "In the Courts of the Crimson Kings".



To Melinda Snodgrass, Daniel Abraham, Emily Mah, Terry England, George R.R. Martin, Walter Jon Williams, Ian Tregellis of Critical Mass, for help and advice.

To Steve Brady for more help, on entomology this time.

Thanks to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Leigh Brackett, Otis Adelbert Kline, Leinster, Heinlein, and to all the other great pulpsters for gracing my childhood with John Carter, Northwest Smith, “Wrong-Way” Carson of Venus, and all the heroes gifted with a better solar system than the one we turned out to inhabit. From the jungles of Venus and the Grand Canal of Marsopolis, I salute you!

All mistakes, infelicities and errors are of course my own.



To Janet, forever.
