Continuing my SF kick this week, today eBookNewser is highlighting Great Kings’ War, an alternate history novel. This book is a sequel to the classic Lord Kalvan of OtherWhen by H Beam Piper. FantasticFiction has more details:
“Calvin Morrison was a pretty good cop in Pennsylvania until he was scooped up by the cross-time flying saucer and transported to Styphons House Subsector, a 16th Century equivalent parallel time-line. Here the Indo-Aryan invasions went east across Asia and down the Aleutian Islands into North America, where they have stagnated for thousands of years. Dropped off into the middle of a local dispute, Corporal Calvin Morrison comes face to face with warriors armed with pikes and broadswords, not petty criminals. Lord Kalvan, as the locals call him, transforms the petty Princedom of Hostigos into a fearsome warrior Kingdom by inspired leadership and advanced military knowledge.”
