History & Science Fiction

You can't get away from history. When I finished writing up the Seven Years' War and turned to science fiction, I thought I was leaving the past behind for a while. But Earth's recent and distant pasts provided the background for most of my stories. To share this background with interested readers, I've pulled together a few links and sources for each story, along with whatever commentary came to mind.
