In the mid-1870s, civilization froze in time when comets hit the earth. Instead of advancing technologically, humanity had to piece itself back together. In the 21st century, boats still run on steam, messages are delivered by telegraph, and the British Empire controls much of the world from its capital in Delhi. The other major world power is the Czar of Russia--who is preparing for global conquest.

event known as The Change ends in Nantucket, an island overrun with
forest and inhabited by a mere 200 people who claim to have been
transported there from out of time. Only one odd stone house
remains standing. Within it, Rudi finds a beautifully made sword
seemingly waiting for him. And once he takes it up, nothing for
Rudi or for the world that he knows will ever be the same...

Eons ago, the powerful Homo Nocturnis ruled the earth. While their
numbers have been greatly reduced, they still exist-though not as
purebreds. Adrian Breze is one such being. Wealthy and reclusive,
he is more Shadowspawn than human. But he rebelled against his
kind, choosing to live as an ordinary man. Now, to save humanity,
he must battle the dark forces of the world-including those in his
First entry in a new series with three big "all new "novellas from
"three "multiple "New York Times" best-sellers S.M. Stirling, John
Ringo & Jody Lynn Nye, and Harry Turtledove The cat-like Mrem,
our heroes, battle the deep reptilian intelligence of humanoid
dinosaurs in a bronze-age world.
Long ago, homo nocturnus ruled the Earth, able to manipulate the
forces of nature at their most basic level. Before the dawn of
recorded history they were overthrown, leaving behind them only
legends--our legends of shapeshifters and blood-drinkers, of cruel
gods and evil magicians, of ogres and goblins, succubi and incubi.
But a strain of their blood lives on in humanity, the genes
themselves bending the forces of probability to reunite. Secret
clans used their half-understood abilities to hide from the
witch-finders and the normal humans; occasionally one would be
detected, a Giles de Rais or an Elizabeth Bathory. Then, in the
nineteenth century, the discoveries of Mendel and Darwin enabled
them to understand what they were and to breed back the full range
of their dark powers.

powers of the world.
