Abstract:

The Roman Empire. Imagine it's fall. Now imagine the warring time with cannon--and a working system of magic. C.J. Cherryh did. In the Sword of Knowledge Cherryh has explored the fall of the empires and the impact of technological knowledge, while replacing the repressed religion of the Christians with a Church of Knowledge. In A Dirge for Sabis we saw the Sabirn Empire fall to barbarians because the rulers are too inflexible to make use of the technology available to them. Wizard Spawn opens centuries later, with the Sabirn empire a blighted memory, and the barbarians established as the new and oppressive rulers. Now another half millennium has passed, and new barbarians are on the rise. It will be a battle of barbarian vigor vs. The Sword of Knowledge in Reap the Whirlwind.
