Product Description

In 2035 A.D., a plague strikes terror throughout the world. Transsexuals are the carriers of Tensen's virus -- a death sentence for their sex partners. Already overwhelmed by pollution and over-population, humanity lashes out at this new threat.

Thirty-year-old transsexual Cean Rowan has always felt connected to Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni, one of Britain’s early tribes. Threatened and humiliated by the Romans, in 61 A.D. Boadicea led a rebellion and almost succeeded in driving the Romans out of the British Isles. But her lack of tactical skills ultimately cost her people their independence, and Boadicea her life.

Targeted by harsh government measures and attacked by hate groups, Cean and his friends fear for their lives. Yet what can they do? Dr. Leogold Fortescue, a friend and scientist specializing in time travel, might have the answer.

What if Cean could go back in time and help Boadicea defeat the Romans? Could he stop the development of Tensen's virus? Could he change the course of history and save those he loves, including Queen Boadicea?

"Queen of Iron Years is a time traveler, alternate worlds masterpiece with quite a few quirky elements to keep the reader intrigued throughout. Cean Rowan, in peril in the century in which he was born, journeys back to Boadicea's Britain to aid her against the Romans. If he succeeds history will be changed but will it be altered for better or worse? McConchie and Horwood have the answers. They are revealed in good order in a novel not lacking in pace." -- Rod Marsden, Australian author and playwright

"Brilliant climax. And a solid book." -- Jack McDevitt, winner of the Nebula and John W. Campbell Awards

"I do love a time travel story that gets it right, and 'Queen of Iron Years' is one of them. Deep, dark, yet filled with hope, it's a story of the courage to create a better future for all. Bravo!" -- Julie E. Czerneda, author of the Clan Chronicles
