Harrison, Harry


Stars and Stripes Forever (Stars & Stripes Forever)

Stars and Stripes Forever (Stars & Stripes Forever) Lowest new price: $25.20
Lowest used price: $1.75
List price: $24.95
Author: Harry Harrison
Brand: Delrey

In this astounding epic of alternate history--a powerful blend of fact, fiction, and strategic possibilities--Harry Harrison poses a provocative what if scenario that would have changed the outcome of the U.S. Civil War--and the course of history. The result is an exciting, action-packed, hugely entertaining novel of war and weaponry on both sides of the Atlantic.

On November 8, 1861, in the Bahama Channel close to Cuba, a U.S. navy warship stopped a British packet, boarded her, and seized two Confederate emissaries on their way to England to seek backing for their cause. England responded with rage . . . and with calls for a war of vengeance. The looming crisis was defused by the peace-minded Prince Albert.

But what if fate had intervened? Imagine how his absence during this critical moment might have changed everything. For lacking Albert's calm voice of reason, Britain now seizes the opportunity to attack and conquer a crippled, war-torn America.

Ulysses S. Grant is poised for an attack that could smash open the South's defenses. In Washington, Abraham Lincoln sees a first glimmer of hope that this bloody war might soon end. But then disaster strikes: English troops have invaded from Canada.

With most of the Northern troops withdrawn to fight the new enemy, General William Tecumseh Sherman and his weakened army stand alone against the Confederates. At sea, the wooden American navy faces the threat of the British iron battleship H.M.S. Warrior.

As Queen Victoria and her prime minister, Lord Palmerston, seek total destruction, Confederate president Jefferson Davis and President Lincoln must make crucial decisions under fierce pressure. Stars and Stripes Forever asks--and then fascinatingly answers--a central question: Could a divided, bloodied America have defeated England, or would the United States have ceased to exist for all time?

From his first professional story written when he was 16, “The Faces Outside,” to his most critically acclaimed work, the novelette Dream Baby—a finalist for both the Hugo and Nebula awards—these 17 stories showcase the author’s five decades of science fiction writing. Whether it be an elderly woman who uses her vast wealth to create a genetically perfect son (“Angels”) or a young boy who learns the rituals of an alien culture in order to obtain an assassin’s help for his unborn sister (“Kin”), the stories resonate with a child’s sense of wonder coming face-to-face with the realities of the human condition in a science-fictional world. The book also features story notes that reveal each story’s origin as well as the influences—both literary and human—on the author’s life and writing career. An introduction by science fiction great Harry Harrison, an afterword by the John W. Campbell Memorial Award-winner Barry N. Malzberg, and cover art by 2005 Chesley Award–winner John Picacio, make this a keepsake collection.
