A very early novel written before the author started writing mainly horror and used the pseudonym S P Somtow I remember meeting Somtow in the 80s when he told me his agent convinced hin to change the name so his novels would sell in the bible belt He shouldn t have changed his name but the move to horror was a wise thing This science fiction novel about an alternative history where Rome has conquered the entire Earth is disjointed, rambling, and not very funny I think this is supposed to A very early novel written before the author started writing mainly horror and used the pseudonym S P Somtow I remember meeting Somtow in the 80s when he told me his agent convinced hin to change the name so his novels would sell in the bible belt He shouldn t have changed his name but the move to horror was a wise thing This science fiction novel about an alternative history where Rome has conquered the entire Earth is disjointed, rambling, and not very funny I think this is supposed to be humor It s hard to tell Why do writers think that all you need to do to make something funny is to give it a Yiddish accent Chalk this up as a wrong turn from a talented writer I stumbled upon this at a used book store and couldn t leave it behind If you can see the details on the cover, there is a fat Roman in full armor eating some sort of sandwich turned out to be a bagel with lox and cream cheese , oblivious to the hungry tyrannosaurus rex behind him who is frightening some Roman soldiers and Native Americans If you re a fan of Roman history and you enjoy the absolutely ridiculous, the WTF factor of this book will make it an excellent read I don t want to give I stumbled upon this at a used book store and couldn t leave it behind If you can see the details on the cover, there is a fat Roman in full armor eating some sort of sandwich turned out to be a bagel with lox and cream cheese , oblivious to the hungry tyrannosaurus rex behind him who is frightening some Roman soldiers and Native Americans If you re a fan of Roman history and you enjoy the absolutely ridiculous, the WTF factor of this book will make it an excellent read I don t want to give away too much, so I will only mention things the teaser material hints at Aztecs, flying saucers, a Roman general s hunt for China by crossing North America , flying saucers, Sasquatch, time traveling aliens, Lacota Indians, etc The Romans have cars They cross the Atlantic like it s no big deal It certainly isn t the best book I ve ever read, but it was highly amusing and well worth a read if you find it for a buck or two at your local used book store una piacevole scoperta La storia una delle molteplici varianti del tema ucronia innestata sulla fantascienza classica In soldoni cosa sarebbe avvenuto se un viaggiatore intergalattico burlone avesse edotto i Romani con chicche tecnologiche tali da renderli capaci di costruire macchine a vapore e navi capaci di solcare l oceano senza capirne in realt il funzionamento ma istruzioni plug and play In breve tempo avrebbero sbaragliato i barbari presenti e futuri e avrebbero colonizzato il una piacevole scoperta La storia una delle molteplici varianti del tema ucronia innestata sulla fantascienza classica In soldoni cosa sarebbe avvenuto se un viaggiatore intergalattico burlone avesse edotto i Romani con chicche tecnologiche tali da renderli capaci di costruire macchine a vapore e navi capaci di solcare l oceano senza capirne in realt il funzionamento ma istruzioni plug and play In breve tempo avrebbero sbaragliato i barbari presenti e futuri e avrebbero colonizzato il nord America con un migliaio di anni in anticipo portando l la pax romana, aka assoggettando trib indiane Aquiliade rimanda proprio alle avventure di uno di questi capi indiani che diventa sodale di un generale romano aiutandolo in conquiste ed esplorazioni, proteggendolo cos dai capricci dell imperatore di turno.Diciamo che il titolo secondo me errato nel senso che il protagonista il Romano e non il capo trib che invece funge da spalla.Certo ci sono miriadi di situazioni troppo forzate al netto di tutta la parte ET ma se si mette in pausa il cervello e ci si lascia trasportare dal viaggio dei nostri eroi nel senso virgiliano del termine non si rimpianger di aver letto il libro
