Synopsis

An If-Of-History Novel

The United States won its independence in 1776, and the world has never been the same since. What if Australia had followed suit? How would our world have been different? That’s the theme that fascinated A. Bertram Chandler who saw, in the famous Ned Kelly, the possibility of an Australian Washington.

For Ned Kelly was not just a lawless bushranger. He was a man of unusual imagination who created his own armor, gathered a band of Irish rebels, and took arms against the frontier law of old Australia. Now, by time machine and calculated interference, a certain 20th Century John Grimes goes back and alters history. Kelly survives!

Utilizing the hidden discoveries of science, Kelly helps an Austrailian-Irish Republic rise from Down Under!
