"In the year 1678, Joshua Wagstaff discovered aether. Once refined, aether had the power to keep blades sharp and make bridges stable, to power telegraphs and heat homes. Aether, its secrets jealously guarded by the Guilds, became the glue that bound English society together, and started the Industrial Revolution. But Robert Burrows has seen the dark side of aether in his native Yorkshire, and when he flees to London, he joins the growing revolution, determined to overthrow the Guilds. Roaming the vast city and exploring its myriad social layers, from petty criminals and revolutionaries to salon mistresses and opium dreamers, Robbie discovers secrets that threaten the very fabric of society, secrets that involves the deepest mysteries of aether. "A masterpiece both of radical urban fantasy and of alternative history." Locus

Winner of the World Fantasy Award and the Sidewise Award for Alternate History: A pastel-hued yet chilling alternate vision of England, The Summer Isles views the nightmare that the country has become since Germany & rsquo;s victory in the Great War, through the eyes of a man whose life lies close to the heart of history In 1918 the Allies were defeated.

But in the twilight of his years, elevated to the role of tutor in an Oxford college, Griffin is getting anxious. Thinking back on a life lived in shadow & mdash;and on his one great love affair with a young soldier during the height of the Great War & mdash;Griffin knows that revealing a secret he has guarded for decades could have devastating consequences for Britain, the world, and especially for the fascist tyrant Arthur, who cites his former teacher as a mentor and major influence

Frost on glass / Ian R. MacLeod by Ian R MacLeod( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A famous, creatively-blocked, novelist faces exile or execution unless he can write a new story in the title novella of this collection, and the theme of writing threads through the pages of the entire book. As well as eleven dazzling stories that explore strange pasts and new futures, there are pieces drawn from the writer's life, substantial commentaries on the origins and development of each of the stories, and a major new essay on how ideas are developed. Both a magnificent gathering of fiction and a penetrating examination of the craft of writing, Frost on Glass memorably showcases and analyses the storytelling genius of Ian R. MacLeod"--Dustjacket

As seen on Sky Arts' Playhouse Presents: Imagine there's no Lennon ... In the reality-altering novella "Snodgrass," John Lennon sidesteps his musical destiny and instead becomes a civil servant After spending his adolescence like so many others had, playing in a band with friends, John Lennon knows it's time to grow up. Skipping out on the Beatles before they would go on to become one of the greatest rock groups of the twentieth century, John moves to Birmingham. As he watches the exploits of friends Paul, Ringo, and George, John grows older and lives an ordinary life ... and he is left wondering "what if'" With "Snodgrass" as its anchor, this collection of eleven stories also includes "The Chop Girl," inspired by the infamous Dresden bombing raids; "Past Magic," a futuristic account of parents cloning their children who have passed away; "New Light on the Drake Equation," inspired by a man's journey as he searches for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence; and seven more tales that showcase MacLeod's breadth as a writer
