Review: Agent of Byzantium

Agent of ByzantiumAgent of Byzantium by Harry Turtledove
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another wonderful alternate version of history by someone I’m increasingly coming to recognise as a master of this genre. This book, based on a premise that the Byzantine Empire survived into the 1300s and that Islam never developed, consists of a series of short stories each complete within themselves but also naturally flowing from one to another.

Like many of the other books of Turtledove’s that I’ve read to date, this book is historically accurate within itself.

Highly recommended.
