Space 1889 When Worlds Collide
Shadows Over Bloomsbury
Since Thomas Edison first explored the worlds with the help of his marvellous ether propeller, the British Empire has grown to include the red plains and stately canals of Mars, the steaming dinosaur-infested swamps of Venus, even a remote outpost in the twilight zone of Mercury. In 1889, the sun truly never sets of the British Empire.
But deep in the Empire a core of revolt festers and grows. Martian cults cry out for the Earthlings’ expulsion. Meanwhile on Earth, the Great Game continues unabated between the old Empires of Europe, each desperate to lay claim to new lands and eager to orchestrate the downfall of their age-old foes.
