about

“Utterly engaging...a page-turner that is certain to win the author legions of new readers and fans.”—George R. R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones

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 that they are no longer in the late twentieth century...but have been transported instead to the Bronze Age! Now they must learn to survive with suspicious, warlike peoples they can barely understand and deal with impending disaster, in the shape of a would-be conqueror from their own time.
S. M. Stirling is the author of numerous novels, both on his own and in collaboration. A former lawyer and an amateur historian, he lives in the Southwest with his wife, Jan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING BOOK! I read this book while on vacation in Mexico and finished it in 4 days flat! Very amazing book! Next step for me now, after reading the whole trilogy, will be to test Stirling's theories by playing Sid Meier's Civilization simulation software on my computer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful - A Must Read Although slow to start, the action only picks up, and transports you away from your mundane, boring life. Stirling has created a masterpiece series with the three books. The research he did on the book, regarding historical timezones shows. He has taken an impossible scenario and made it not only plausible, but makes you dream to be included too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic. Island in the Sea of Time can only be described as a grand story in the mold of L. Sprague DeCamps' Lest Darkness Fall.

Editorial Reviews

“Utterly engaging. This is unquestionably Steve Stirling’s best work to date, a page-turner that is certain to win the author legions of new readers and fans.”—George R. R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones“A perfectly splendid story…endlessly fascinating…solidly convincing.”—Paul Anderson“A compelling cast of characters…a fine job of conveying both a sense of loss and hope.”—Science Fiction Chronicle“[Q]ite a good book…definitely a winner.”—Aboriginal Science Fiction“Meticulous, imaginative….Logical, inventive and full of richly imagined characters, this is Stirling’s most deeply realized book yet.”—Susan Shwartz, author of The Grail of Hearts“One of the best time travel/alternative history stories I’ve ever read, period. Stirling combines complex, believable characters, meticulous research, and a fascinating setup to produce a book you won’t want to—and won’t be able to—put down. An outstanding piece of work.”—Harry Turtledove“The adventure that unfolds, powered by Stirling’s impressive stores of knowledge and extraordinary narrative skill, is an enormously entertaining read.”—Virtual North Woods Website
