The Nomad of Time, Paperback / softback Book

The Nomad of Time Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Captain Oswald Bastable, an Edwardian soldier, is catapulted into the far-flung future. 1973, to be precise - but a 1973 that is very different to the one we know.

The First World War never happened, and the world seems to be at peace.

It is a peace that the honorable Bastable cannot allow to continue.

But can one man defeat an Empire - and what will be the consequences if he does?The time-travelling adventures of Bastable, an incarnation of the Eternal Champion, are widely considered to be among the first steampunk novels, and display Moorcock's remarkable ingenuity and skill at plotting to great effect. Contains THE WARLORD OF THE AIR, THE LAND LEVIATHAN and THE STEEL TSAR.
