Yes no maybe? study


I'm a huge fan of his "Time's Tapestry" series. It'd be pretty ace if anyone else on this forum knew these books - none of my friends do, so I can't exactly rave on about how amazing they are, or how fantastic the ending of the fourth book was.

I also enjoyed "the H-Bomb Girl", which is more young-adult oriented, but fantastic nonetheless.

Could you add what the book is about? Because I've never heard of them and it sounds interesting. A summary perhaps?

Sure thing! The series that I've read is essentially historical sci-fi. The books are based on prophecies handed down through the generations, and focus on the lives of characters in one or two families and how said lives are changed by said prophecies. The prophecies are made by a so-called "Weaver" who works at the tapestry of time (hence the series title). Each book spans periods of up to 500 years.

They are as follows:

Emperor - set in ancient Roman Britain
Conqueror - set in Norman conquest-era Britain
Navigator - set in Inquisition/Columbus-era Spain and Britain
Weaver- set in an alternate version of WWII, where Germany has invaded Britain


Still interested? ;D

Very! Are there going to be more books? Maybe they would be set in the future?

There aren't, unfortunately, but he's written so many other books... Razz
