A.M. Brosius writes fiction and nonfiction: "history, real or feigned"; political-economic and cultural theory; and the history and techniques of swordplay. He is an amateur historian, with varied interests including: Pristine Civilizations, Hellas and Byzantium, Medieval Europe, the Labor Movement, Dada and Surrealism, Lettrists and Situationists. He has studied and practiced swordplay for over thirty years. The Commonwealth in his novels reflects all of his many hobbies and interests. The eight stories in this collection span the Multiverse, in various Alternate Histories: from Greece in the Thirteenth Century of the Christian Hypothesis to the Hellenic Commonwealth in the Twenty-first.
