S.M. Stirling
Against the Tide of Years (Island in the Sea of Time, Book II)
Roc (paperback, 400 pages, $6.99/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: May, 1999

Island In The Sea Of Time, the first volume in the saga of a group of Nantucket Islanders cast back in time to 1250 BC, was a significant departure for Stirling, whose prior fame rose mostly from a series of notable collaborations with folk such as David Drake (The General series), Anne McCaffrey (The City Who Fought and The Ship Avenged), James Doohan, Jerry Pournelle, and others. It was also called "one of the best time/travel alternate history stories I've ever read, period," by no less an authority than Harry Turtledove. "In the years since their arrival, the fledgling Republic of Nantucket has strived to better the primitive world in which they now exist. Their prime concerns are establishing a constitution and handling the waves of immigrants from the British Isles. But a renegade time traveler plans his own future by forging an empire for himself based on conquest by modern technology. The Republic has no alternative but to face the inevitable war brought on by one of their own."
Island In the Sea of Time review by Steven H Silver
[Cover] Island in the Sea of Time
Roc paperback
From co-author of Blood Vengeance, The City Who Fought (with Anne McCaffrey), and Go Tell the Spartans (with Jerry Pournelle). It's spring on Nantucket and everything is perfectly normal, until a sudden storm blankets the entire island. When the weather clears, the island's inhabitants find they're no longer in the late 20th century, but in the Bronze Age. Now they must learn to survive alongside suspicious, warlike peoples they can barely understand and deal with impending disaster, in the form of a would-be conqueror from their own time.
[Cover] The Ship Avenged
Baen hard cover
From the co-author (with Anne McCaffrey) of The City Who Fought comes this continuation of the story. It is ten years later and Joat is an adult, a commercial ship owner who sometimes handles "special assignments." Recruited by Central Worlds Security, Joat finds herself once again tangling with the Kolnari, who invaded and nearly destroyed her station, and Nomik Ciety, the uncle who lost her in a card game. But this time the Kolnari have a different plan: an infection that could destroy civilization.
[Cover] Babylon 5: Betrayals

Babylon 5 lives up to its name as two warring superpowers arrive on the station for peace talks. But Garibaldi discovers there is a rebellion brewing of biblical proportions--and a con artist fanning the flames between Centauri and Narn.
