Publisher Description

New time travel military adventure from New York Times best-selling novelist S.M. Stirling


IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT


Everyone could see it coming. But one man could do something about it. Oh, he couldn’t avert the nuclear holocaust, but a scientist in Austria, ruthlessly using billions of research dollars for his own purposes, set himself up an out: he created a time machine, and filled a warehouse with low-tech survival gear. Too bad he didn’t get to use it himself.


Instead, a team of American grad students, led by their professor, is sent back to the late Roman Empire. Even though they are experts in this time and place, they are about to realize that books and actual experience are very different things.


If they can survive, they hope to remake the world into a better place. But that’s a big “if."


At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).


Praise for S.M. Stirling:


“A powerful, convincing adventure with a large cast of ordinary and extraordinary people. Don’t miss it.” —Harry Turtledove


“A stunning speculative vision of a near-future bereft of modern conveniences but filled with human hope and determination. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal


“Post-apocalypse novels often veer either too heavily into romantic Robinsonades or nihilistic dead ends. But Stirling has struck the perfect balance between grit and glory.” —Science Fiction Weekly


“Stirling shows that while our technology influences the means by which we live, it is the myths we believe in that determine how we live. The novel’s dual themes—myth and technology—should appeal to both fantasy and hard SF readers as well as to techno-thriller fans.” —Publishers Weekly


“Fans of apocalyptical thrillers like Stephen King’s The Stand will find Dies the Fire absolutely riveting . . . a fantastic epic work.” —Midwest Book Review


“This volume delivers an engaging and approachable new adventure along with one of the very best of the classic stories.” —GrimDark Magazine


“Absolute fanboy’s dream . . . S.M. Stirling, along with illustrator Robert De La Torre, do a bang-up job with Blood of the Serpent. Cheers to Titan Books as well! The only other thing this fanboy can ask for is: More, please!” —Fantasy Literature
