Read full description of the books Roma Eterna:Science Fiction and fantasy Grand Master Robert Silverberg collected his stories about an alternate history Rome and published them all together in this well written and entertaining novel in 2003.
Many of the stories had been written beginning in the late 80s and 90s; Silverberg fans will note that Byzantium is a favorite theme. The author created new stories to pull it all together and presents the reader with a fascinating journey from what would have been the end of the Roman Empire to over two thousand years later when mankind is reaching for the stars amidst an ancient and decadent civilization.
Silverberg begins his new Roman history with a note on dates. Traditional historians have dated the founding of the city at 753 BC, and so the Romans reckoned this date as year one, or as AUC ab urbe condita “from the founding of the city”. Thus, each chapter is titled with its AUC date and that chapter deals with a point in our time where Silverberg’s alternate history of Rome goes down a different path. We see what became of Christianity, Islam, and the division with Constantinople.
What keeps this compelling and moving along is Silverberg’s masterful writing and his knack for telling a good story.
For Silverberg fans and also fans of alternate history.
