Against the Tide of Years
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451457439, Mass Market Paperback)In Stirling's bestselling Island in the Sea of Time, modern Nantucket found itself trapped in the Bronze Age. In the sequel, Against the Tide of Years, the renegade William Walker forges a dangerous alliance with the ancient Greek kings Agamemnon and Odysseus; Commodore Marian Alston faces terrible sea storms and cannon-armed Phoenician ships in an anachronistic Age of Sail; and the outnumbered Nantucketers race Walker to make contact with the Babylonian Empire.
Of course this ambitious, action-packed series is perfect for time-travel, alternate-history, and military-SF fans. But epic-fantasy readers, Burroughs and Haggard fans desiring a modern update of the lost-civilization adventure novel, and anyone who ever read Patrick O'Brian for the terrific sea-battles will enjoy it as well. --Cynthia Ward

The new Republic of Nantucket is now threatened by renegade Coast Guard officer William Walker, who is making alliances with the Trojan War heroes Agamemnon and Odysseus. The Republic and Walker deal with Bronze Age Greece, Phoenicia, and Babylonia, ancient regimes changed by the modern technology the time travelers introduced.
