Summary
  • "ALL-NEW STORIES OF THE EMBERVERSE by S.M. Stirling, Harry Turtledove, Walter Jon Williams, John Birmingham, John Barnes, Jane Lindskold, and more ... "[A] vivid portrait of a world gone insane, "* S.M. Stirling's New York Times bestselling Novels of the Change have depicted a vivid, utterly persuasive, and absorbingly unpredictable postapocalyptic wasteland in which all modern technology has been left in ashes, forcing humankind to rebuild an unknowable new world in the wake of unimaginable-and deliberate-chaos. Now, in this startling new anthology, S.M. Stirling invites the most fertile minds in science fiction to join him in expanding his rich Emberverse canvas. Here are inventive new perspectives on the cultures, the survivors, and the battles arising across the years and across the globe following the Change. In his all-new story "Hot Night at the Hopping Toad," Stirling returns to his own continuing saga of the High Kingdom of Montival. In the accompanying stories are fortune seekers, voyagers, and dangers-from the ruins of Sydney to the Republic of Fargo and Northern Alberta to Venetian and Greek galleys clashing in the Mediterranean. These new adventures revisit beloved people and places from Stirling's fantastic universe, introduce us to new ones, and deliver endlessly fascinating challenges to conquer, all while unfolding in a "postapocalyptic landscape that illuminates both the best and the worst of which our species is capable, "** "a world you can see, feel, and touch." *** Contributors to The Change: Tales of Downfall and Rebirth Include Introduction: The Change as Setting and Secondary World by S.M.
