Subject: Zeitreisegeschichte, spielt in der SpŠtantike. "It's a bit of a tour de force; for a de-frocked classicist like me, it was fun that some of the story's revelations come over a heated discussion of some of the Greek forms in The IliadÓ (Ingria). "This story which mixes ancient Rome and high technology is set in Aquitania during the reign of Antoninus Pius.Ó (Rick Heli)
Unique Qualities: Im Sammelband Departures auch die Geschichte "Counting PotshardsÓ, die in Athen einige Jahrhunderte nach einem alternativen Ausgang der Perserkriege spielt und eventuell einschlŠgig ist. Zum Autor vgl. Heli-Liste. Er promovierte in byzantinischer Geschichte: ãThe immediate successors of Justinian: a study of the Persian problem and of continuity and change in internal secular affairs in the later Roman Empire during the reigns of Justin II and Tiberius II Constantine (A.D. 565-582)." Diss. UCLA, 1977.
