: Has anyone here read Pavane by Keith Roberts? I want to discuss the book.
: Bryce A. SUderow
It's a classic set of alternate world stories, well worth discussing. Published in 1968, “Pavane” is one of the masterworks of modern science fiction.
"Pavane” is a “fix-up,” a novel constructed from a series of separately published but linked stories. It poses the question, what would have happened if the forces of Catholicism had maintained their power over Europe? Would they have suppressed the innovation that ended the dark ages and led to the modern world as we know it?
What do you think, Bryce?
