About the Author

Alan Smale grew up in Yorkshire, England, and now lives in the Washington, D.C., area. By day he works at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as a professional astronomer, studying black holes, neutron stars, and other bizarre celestial objects. However, too many family vacations at Hadrian's Wall in his formative years plus a couple of degrees from Oxford took their toll, steering his writing toward alternate, secret, and generally twisted history. He has sold numerous short stories to magazines including Asimov's and Realms of Fantasy, and he won the 2010 Sidewise Award for Best Short-Form Alternate History.

Reviews

"The pace . . . is breathless and the action relentless. . . . A satisfying culmination to the adventures of a Roman warrior in the New World."--Kirkus Reviews "The final volume of [Alan] Smale's Clash of Eagles trilogy is relentless, with characters and readers hardly getting a breath before the next threat comes crashing down. . . . Smale's hard-hitting and satisfying conclusion will be a must for his readers, as the trilogy will be for any fan of alternate history."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Smale delivers in spades . . . the best of the trilogy. Highly recommended."--Historical Novels Review "[Eagle and Empire] had awesome worldbuilding, worthy and interesting characters, and a great plot. . . . Altogether, a very satisfying journey."--The Nameless Zine Praise for Alan Smale "In Alan Smale, speculative fiction has been dealt a winning hand. Part historian, part anthropologist, part scientist, Smale is a Renaissance man with a storyteller's gift for letting tireless research inform the narrative without overwhelming it.
