Egyptian chariots carry shotgunners and haul heavy cannon into battle, Roman centurions fight at the whims of bug-eyed monsters, vigilant National Guardsmen hold the line against cannibalistic illegal aliens, and American soldiers wander savage lands, leading a massive AI-controlled BOLO tank, as they struggle to return home to a United States that no longer exists.

Through themes of duty, honor, and fortitude under fire, New York Times best-selling author S. M. Stirling presents thirteen stories of military men and women pushed to the point where myth and technology collide.

Showcasing Stirling’s trademark military action, jargon-heavy dialogue, and conflict-driven storytelling, these thrilling tales of alternate histories, apocalyptic futures, and hard-driving military Science Fiction demonstrate why Stirling has long been a fan favorite.

Ice, Iron and Gold features an original novella set in the Emberverse (Dies the Fire) and “Riding Shotgun to Armageddon,” a short story set within the universe of Stirling’s Nantucket series (Island in the Sea of Time).

“Stirling combines complex, believable characters, meticulous research… to produce a book you won’t want to – and won’t be able to – put down.”
— Harry Turtledove, author of Guns of the South

“…thought-provoking and engaging storytelling…”
— Publishers Weekly

“Stirling’s writing just keeps getting better.”
— SF Site
