The Empire of Time: Roads to Moscow: Book 1

There is only the war. Otto Behr is a German agent, fighting his Russian counterparts across three millennia, manipulating history for moments in time that can change everything. Only the remnants of two great nations stand and for Otto, the war is life itself, the last hope for his people. But in a world where realities shift and memory is never constant, can one man's destiny be the deciding factor in a war between the empires of time?

David Wingrove

David Wingrove (born September 1954 in North Battersea, London) is a British science fiction writer. He is well-known as the author of the Chung Kuo novels (eight in total). He is also the co-author (with Rand and Robyn Miller) of the three Myst novels.

Biography

Wingrove worked in the banking industry for 7 years until he became fed up with it. He then attended the University of Kent, Canterbury, where he read English and American Literature.

He is married and, with his wife Susan, has four daughters Jessica, Amy, Georgia, and Francesca.

Career

Between 1972 and 1982 he wrote over 300 unpublished short stories and 15 novels.

He started work on a new fictional project called A Perfect Art. Between 1984 and 1988, when it was first submitted, the title was changed twice, becoming first A Spring Day at the Edge of the World and then finally Chung Kuo, under which title it was sold to 18 publishers throughout the world. The Chung Kuo series ran to eight of nine planned volumes before the series was cancelled and the author had to prematurely finish the story in the eighth volume, which both he and readers found unsatisfying.[1]

In 2008 Nicolas Cheetham at Quercus Publishing bought the rights to the series and planned an ambitious reprinting and repackaging of the sequence, 'recasting' it as eighteen shorter novels (including a radically re-written finale) and an all-new prequel novel, provisionally entitled When China Comes. Quercus abandoned the project after Cheetham left, but Cheetham reacquired it for his new publishers, Corvus Atlantic in 2009.[2] The reissuing of the series was planned to run from September 2010 to May 2014, commencing with the prequel novel, now retitled Son of Heaven.[3] However, this was followed by news of a delay to Spring 2011 and the addition of a second prequel novel, Daylight on Iron Mountain.[4]

Wingrove also has plans for further novels, including a first person character novel called Dawn in Stone City set in the Chung Kuo setting. He is also working on three very different novels, The Beast with Two Backs, Heaven's Bright Sun and Roads to Moscow.
