Gollancz have announced the launch of a new sci-fi epic, Bronze Summer, from renowned author Stephen Baxter, due out next month.

Centuries have passed. The wall that Ana’s people built has long outlasted her and history has been changed. The British Isles are still one with the European mainland and Doggerland has become a vibrant and rich land. So rich that it has drawn the attention of the Greeks.

An invasion is mounted and soon Greek Biremes are grinding ashore on a coastline we never knew and the world will be changed for ever.

An epic wall has been built to keep the sea out. And the history of the world has been changed.

Stephen Baxter’s new series catapults forward from pre-history into the ancient world and charts a new and wonderful story for our world.

A superb alternate history from an SF master, Bronze Summer is an excellent example of Baxter’s belief that anything is possible for mankind – even making a new world.
