A new alternate history of America from the author of The Peshawar Lancers, the bestselling novel the Chicago Sun-Times called “a pleasure to read” and Harry Turtledove hailed as “first-rate adventure all the way.”
1945: An ex-marine has discovered a portal that permits him to travel between the America he knows-and a virgin America untouched by European influence. 21st century: The two realities collide…
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.
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”.
