About the Author

Alan Smale grew up in Yorkshire, England, and now lives in the Washington, D.C., area. By day he works at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as a professional astronomer, studying black holes, neutron stars, and other bizarre celestial objects. However, too many family vacations at Hadrian's Wall in his formative years plus a couple of degrees from Oxford took their toll, steering his writing toward alternate, secret, and generally twisted history. He has sold numerous short stories to magazines including Asimov's and Realms of Fantasy, and he won the 2010 Sidewise Award for Best Short-Form Alternate History.

Reviews

Praise for Alan Smale and Eagle in Exile

"In Alan Smale, speculative fiction has been dealt a winning hand. Part historian, part anthropologist, part scientist, Smale is a Renaissance man with a storyteller's gift for letting tireless research inform the narrative without overwhelming it. Smale entertains, educates, and enraptures."--Myke Cole, author of Javelin Rain

"[Eagle in Exile] has the pace and scope of a Michener or Uris epic. . . . Smale's action scenes slash across page after page, intense and bloody. . . . Grab your dagger and sword, for the battle continues."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Warfare, political conflict, family strife--these are all presented in an epic scope where any decision or wrong move can forever change society."--Tech Times

"Thoroughly believable . . . Marcellinus is a complicated man, a hero we can all get behind."--Historical Novels Review
