Although Robinson is a Marxist and should subscribe to the theory that all the troubles of the Third World were caused by European colonisation, in this history there are just as many wars, the slave ships taking Africans to the New World are Arab, and the Chinese colonise Western America..."
"This is a great book - credited to Richard Dreyfuss as well as Harry Turtledove I assume this was intended as a screenplay in which Richard would play the main character.

"A female mercenary captain in France in the middle ages who has a voice in her head that helps her win battles - she's actually a genetically-engineered clone telepathically linked to a Carthaginean military computer... In our present day a historian is researching the life of Ash, uncertain whether her story is fact or fiction."
"This is a collection of all four books in the series, starting with "They Shall Have Stars" (1956). Manhattan Island, complete with skyscrapers, becomes a starship! A film was planned for 1979 but never appeared, but the special effects required are easily do-able today."
