LOL! That was funny Aquila.
If anyone else has read the book...do you think this type of book can be filmed? More accurately, filmed successfully? Maybe a flag difference or something, but would that be enough to bring the whole "difference" into focus?
I think it could be filmed. Just film it straight, no flag differences or anything like that. It works completely as a mystery. The alt-history bits only start making a difference as the story unfolds and that is part of its charm.
I have The King's Peace sitting on my unread shelves at the moment. From the reviews I have read it is Arthurian in a way but it isn't traditionally Arthurian. It is a gritty medieval story in a kind of alternate Britian called Tir Tanagiri.
Side note: I see that we're forgetting this group! I know that LT has a zillion places for us to read and share our ideas about reading, but our shared interest in this fascinating topic of alt-hist, time travel and parallel worlds can claim some of our Thing-time, surely!
What say you all?
I have found some good books through this group so I hope it gets busy again. Special thanks for introducing me to Christopher Priest and The Man in the High Castle.
