    This review is from: The Difference Engine (Gollancz S.F.) (Paperback)

    This book is the best `alternative history’ novel, and one of the best SF novels I have read so far. The authors did their homework before writing this book; the atmosphere, the historical details and the psychology of the 19th-century characters are utterly credible, as is the science. I had no problem with the numerous digressions from the main storyline; they thoroughly immerse you into the culture of the time – or the alternative culture that might have been.

    I’m a great fan of Baxter, who also has stories in which some discoveries or inventions are made “too early”, but those lack the feeling of authenticity The Difference Engine manages to generate. There should be more books like this.
