Description:

The Peace is alternate-history Irish-flavoured Christian science fiction. James IV, High King of Ireland and the worlds she rules, is deposed at the height of the Three Worlds' War (1941.) Banned from the throne by his corrupt nobles for 60 years, he struggles to survive and maintain the Pax Hibernia despite clan MacCarthy's genocidal high-tech schemes. Characters from our earth struggle with their own religious and political loyalties as they are drawn into Greater Hibernia's intrigues. Remote Edwardstown (Calgary) becomes the stage on which three interwoven tales of romance and tragedy converge, launching reborn lives and new hopes. – Volume I of The Interregnum.

Author's comment:

I wrote The Peace starting in 1999 when there was little overtly Christian SF (and no alternate history I was aware of.) "Hibernia" or "Ortho Earth" as the Metan scholars call her, split off from ours in the so-called "long nexus" which began when Pilate did/did not wash his hands of Jesus, and concluded a millennium later following the battle of Clontarf when Brian Boru was/wasn't killed. On Hibernia, Boru founded a lasting Irish throne which ruled their entire earth, and after the Metans gave them the technology for travelling the Timestream to the other earths (excepting Meta itself) they formed a federation with Babylon (Para Earth) and began meddling in the affairs of other earths (including ours.) The Peace got a very good review from Tom Easton in Analog and was nominated by its original publisher for the Franklin award as best eBook of the year. – Rick Sutcliffe (June, 2007)
