Two award-winning writers take us on a romp through time, space and Ancient Rome as The Wandering Warriors tells the alternate-history story of a 1940s barnstorming baseball team that’s led by a fictional version of retired baseball player and spy Moe Berg and finds itself transported from rural Illinois to Ancient Rome in 210 AD, just after the death of famous emperor Septimius Severus.
Award-winning author Rick Wilber’s fictional versions of famous baseball player and World War II spy Moe Berg have been entertaining readers of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine for years. In this collection of alternate-history stories, Wilber’s fictional Moe Berg puts down his ball and bat and goes to work for a mysterious superspy woman as they work to save America from a German atom bomb.
Rick’s novel To Leuchars (Wildside, 2000), which gathered together a novel’s worth of his previously published S’hudonni stories, was called a “minor masterpiece” on SFSite.com.
Peter Holman would become a central figure in a power struggle of Galactic proportions, a man whose fate dictated the fates of worlds. And in the end he’ll pay a price for his ambition that no man could bear to pay.
