Stirling, S.M. Nantucket Trilogy
Divergence: c 1250 BCE
What if: Modern technology was introduced into the world of c. 1250 BCE.
Series note: Trilogy composed of Island in the Sea of Time, Against the Tide of Years, and On the Oceans of Eternity.
Comments: The books themselves never mention a series title, and references have been seen elsewhere referring to this as the Islander Trilogy. A related trilogy (or hexology, as three further volumes have been contracted) called Change World began in 2004 with Dies the Fire, but that work is either not allohistorical or is "border line".
Awards: Finalist: 2000 Sidewise Award for best long-form alternate history.
