Synopsis

1588: Queen Elizabeth is felled by an assassin's bullet. Within the week, the Spanish Armada had set sail, and its victory changed the course of history.

1968: England is still dominated by the Church of Rome. There are no telephones, no television, no nuclear power. As Catholicism and the Inquisition tighten their grip, rebellion is growing.

    A magnificent book by one of the most underrated science fiction writers. The best alternative history book I've read, and written at a time when it was a fresh idea, rather than an endlessly recycled trope.
