The Gordian Protocol
by David Weber and Jacob Holo


Overview -
NEW STANDALONE NOVEL FROM NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE HONOR HARRINGTON SERIES, DAVID WEBER

A MAN OF TWO WORLDS

History professor Benjamin Schr der lives a happy life. He has a job he loves in a profession he adores. Then everything changes. A student's dissertation on Operation Oz, the Pacific Allies' invasion of Vladivostok, staged through occupied Japan to meet their Imperial German allies, sets off a psychotic episode in Schr der. It has to be psychotic, right?

Schr der is flooded with memories of a different, ghastly world in which Operation Oz never happened. Memories of helpless civilians slaughtered in extermination camps. A world where the Chinese Communists succeeded. Where the Middle East became a festering sore of bloodshed and fanaticism. Worst of all--a world filled with thousands of nuclear warheads waiting to launch

Then a lunatic knocks on Schr der's door. He's a man with an impossible story about alternate realities, time travel, temporal knots, and a dozen doomed universes that must inevitably die. It's all beginning to sound . . . true. And if it is, then Benjamin Schr der could be the one man who will decide which universe lives and which dies--including the universe that contains the woman he loves more than life itself.
