Dies the Fire Dies the Fire by S.M. Stirling
an audiobook review by Nicki Gerlach
What would you do if tomorrow morning your cell phone stopped working? What if it weren't just your phone, but also your computer, car, and refrigerator? And what if it weren't just your electronics, but those of everyone? What would you do? Could you find enough food to survive? Could you defend it against other people who want to take it from you?

Ice, Iron and Gold Ice, Iron and Gold by S.M. Stirling
reviewed by Nathan Brazil
This is a collection of thirteen short stories, drawn from across the author's career as a professional writer. It's a diverse introduction for readers who have heard of his alternate history works, but have baulked at committing to an entire series. Helpfully, there are two stories included which afford a taste of the author's best known works; an original Emberverse novella, and an Islands In the Sea of Time story. Anyone who has wondered if they'd like the style and substance of those series should try what's on offer here.

Conquistador Conquistador by S.M. Stirling
reviewed by Steven H Silver
One minute Tom Christiansen is a warden for the California Department of Fish and Game working with the FBI to crack an animal smuggling ring, the next minute he's trying to figure out how a practically extinct California Condor was found without any genetic ties to other existing California Condors. Thus begins this a novel of a parallel California.

T2: Infiltrator T2: Infiltrator by S.M. Stirling
reviewed by Martin Lewis
For the last 6 years, Sarah and John Connor have been in hiding in Paraguay. Under assumed names, Sarah runs a trucking company whilst John is away at military academy. One day, their neighbour comes to collect a delivery and, to Sarah's horror, he is the spitting image of the T-800 unit. Though he claims to be an Austrian rancher called Dieter von Rossbach, Sarah cannot treat this as a coincidence and starts to investigate his background.

The Peshawar Lancers The Peshawar Lancers by S.M. Stirling
reviewed by Steven H Silver
A fragmentary comet has struck the Earth in the 1870s, making much of Europe and America uninhabitable. England and French refugees have managed to move their governments to less damaged countries, with the British basing themselves in the Indian dominions. The lives of Captain Athelstane, King of the Peshawar Lancers, and his scientist sister, Cassandra are going in very different directions until attempts on their lives lead them into a mystery which threatens not only them, but the entire British Empire in exile.

Against the Tide of Years Against the Tide of Years by S.M. Stirling
reviewed by Steven H Silver
Sequel to Island in the Sea of Time, the Nantucketters work to integrate indigenous populations into the Nantucket way of life and to set in place an alliance which will help them corral William Walker and his band of degenerate renegades.

Island In the Sea of Time Island In the Sea of Time by S. M. Stirling
reviewed by Steven H Silver
First of a trilogy, Steven tells us this novel can stand on its own. Its realistic portrayal of the characters, without any Smithian or Heinleinesque superheroes who rarely make mistakes, is one of the novel's strengths.
