On the Oceans of Eternity
Ten years ago, inhabitants of the twentieth century and the Bronze Age were tossed together by the Event. But as two worlds converge, only one can be the victor in a battle to lead this strange new world.
Many thanks to the cadets and staff of the Coast Guard Academy, New London, CT, for their hospitality and interest; special thanks to Professor Faye Ringle of the Academy; and to the officers and crew of Eagle, for the guided tour.
