An Oblique Approach

Belisarius Series: Book 1

Eric Flint
David Drake

Only three things stand between the Malwa and the conquest of Earth: Byzantium, the empire of Rome in the East; a crystal that urges mankind to fight; and Belisarius, general of the Byzantine Empire, and arguably the greatest commmander the Earth has ever known.

In the Heart of Darkness

Belisarius Series: Book 2

Eric Flint
David Drake

Belisarius is all that stands between the alien Malwa and the domination of sixth-century Earth. The ruthless supermind that controls the Malwa intends first to rule the world and then to put its stamp upon all eternity. Guided by visions from a future that may never be, Belisarius and his companions must fight their way across Northern India, seeking the heart of the enemy's power. Against them are numbers, savagery and an icy inhuman intelligence that is without weakness or mercy. And Belisarius has another enemy to contend with, closer to home: in Constantinople, his own emperor, Justinian the Great, begins to see him as a threat...

Fortune's Stroke

Belisarius Series: Book 4

EVIL FROM BEYOND TIME RULES THE GREATEST EMPIRE ON EARTH!

Link, the supercomputer from a future that should not exist, has used terror and gunpowder weapons to forge the Malwa Empire, harnessing the vast manpower of the Indian subcontinent and using the barbarian races of the periphery to bind the whole together. No power on Earth in the 6th century could stand against Link's evil.

Aide, a human soul embodied in a jewel, has come back to halt evil's progress. Aide has no power but that of truth, but truth is the only power that could move the greatest general of the age, Belisarius.

With his sword, his paladins, and his genius, Belisarius has turned the armies of Byzantium into a weapon capable of blunting the first assault of the Malwa hordes. Now, supported by allies from all the world yet free, Belisarius, with his wife and co-commander Antonina, faces overwhelming Malwa numbers in a ring that tightens about them.

There is no room for maneuver and no safety in defeat. The armies of Good and Evil gathered on the fertile plains of Mesopotamia will decide the fate of the world --

And the fate of all the future!

The Tide of Victory

Belisarius Series: Book 5

AN EVIL

The creators of the monster called Link once were human, but that was distant ages in their past. Now, from the far future, they have sent their creation back to shape the world of the 6th century AD into the form that will make their own foul existence possible.

Taught and ruled by Link, the Malwa Empire has spread from the Indus Valley, across India and into Mesopotamia. Its inhuman master has chosen its instruments from the most brutal and degraded members of humanity, and they have served its monstrous ends well.

A GUIDE

Those in the future who never were human have sent their own messenger to the past: Aide, a gleaming jewel who can warn but not lead; who can teach the construction of new weapons but cannot wield those weapons himself.

Aide has come to Belisarius, the greatest general of the 6th century and perhaps any century. Between them they have forged an alliance of all the world against evil -- and an army that can be the spear through evil's heart.

A CRUSADE

With lancers and breech-loading rifles, with steamships and with galleys, Belisarius is marching into the Malwa heartland. In a world aflame with treachery, assassination, and slaughter beyond anything save the battles of mythology, he and his companions know only one sure thing: if they fail, their whole world is doomed to living Hell -- for all time!

A VICTORY!

Politics, battle, and heroic adventure in a vivid alternate past!

The Dance of Time

Belisarius Series: Book 6

Eric Flint
David Drake

The Malwa and their evil have been driven back to their Indian heartland, but there they coil to strike again. Ruled by a monster from the future which is part computer and part demon, they prepare a fresh attack whose success will leave them rulers of the world—and the monster that guides the Malwa will rule the whole future!

Belisarius, the greatest general of his age, has arrayed the forces of Mankind against the Malwa evil. On his breast is the jewel sent to his support from a future of hope and freedom, willing to guide him but never to direct his actions. Behind him are allies from across Europe, Asia and Africa--mutually distrustful but aware that neither they nor Mankind have any hope if the Malwa prevail. Belisarius faces armies and assassins, ruthless brutality and inhuman cruelty. There is no hope for Mankind if he fails--so he must not fail!
