When Captain Benjamin Bantam is tapped to go back in time in order to retrieve a cure for the vicious Shadow plague, he is shocked to arrive in an alternate 1944 where electricity doesn't exist. Instead, a parallel past has mysteriously arisen - complete with parasols, stunningly luxurious Aerotels, hydrologic computing, Helux-powered "cloud growlers" and a space elevator-based moon race with Germany. And of course, there is the lovely Dr. Rachelle Archenstone....
But when Hitler is made Chancellor in this world and the American space program sabotaged, Bantam is the only one who realizes the true depth of the danger posed by the newly-formed Nazi party. Together with Rachelle, he races to save this America while seeking an explanation to the mystery of this alternate past - and with it, a way to return to his own world with the Shadow's cure. But when it comes down to a choice between his lovely Rachelle and a thousand years of Nazi rule, what will he do?
Thrill to a tale of a Yesterday that never was - and yet was!

International Save An Astronaut Day

Just finished listening. Again, you've crafted an awesome world. And I loved the Planet Furious mention! That's awesome. I am one person who is dying to hear more about the Age of Aether! The helux dancers sounded awesome- i keep directing the attack on the ballroom in my head, trying to aim more for Guy Ritchie than Jerry Bruckheimer.

Actually, this would be an awesome Luc Besson film. I loved how it had the feel of a good solid Heinlein, kinda like Double Star or Friday, but it also had that edge like Moorcock. All in all, i loved it.

And Cleveland!? Can you Doctor Who him back on into the sequel?! He was a great character!!!!
