Praise for the novels of The Merchant Princes: "[These books] are, first and foremost, great fun."--Paul Krugman, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Great Unraveling ""If imagination is the key to success for a writer, Charles Stross has it in spades." "--The Times" (London) "A good deal of fun. Fans of this series should find this conclusion satisfying and chilling."--"RT Book Reviews" on "Trade of Queens ""Stross effectively builds tension as the clock ticks down toward a hopeless confrontation between the Clan and its superpower opponent. . . The conclusion brings events in these three universes together successfully. . . This all makes for a more than satisfactory close to [the] series.""--Strange Horizons ""The world-building in this series is simply superb, in other words--it is engaging, crystal-clear and disturbingly real. . . . "The Merchants' War" is fast-paced and engrossing and will leave readers ravenous for the next installment.""--SciFi Weekly ""These books are immense fun, a sort of 21st-century version of the solid, thought-out costume sword-and-spaceship fiction that provided the enduring spine of science fiction entertainment .""--Locus" on "The Hidden Family"Vom Verlag:
A dissident faction of the Clan, the alternate universe group of families that has traded covertly with our world for a century or more, has carried nuclear devices between the worlds and exploded them in Washington, DC, killing the President of the United States. Now they will exterminate the rest of the Clan and keep Miriam alive only long enough to bear her child, the heir to the throne of their land in the Gruinmarkt world. Mike Fleming, late of US intelligence, has just survived an attack on his life in Massachusetts and knows the worst and deepest secret: behind the horrifying plot is a faction of the US government itself, preparing for a political takeover in the aftermath of terrifying disaster. There is no safe place except, perhaps, in the third alternate world, New Britain - which has just had a revolution and a nuclear incident of its own.
