What is "In the time of the Sixth Sun"?
General Background Note! The cover blurb on Wasteland of Flint indicates the events of the book take place only 500 years after the Méxica encounter the Japanese. This is entirely untrue! The Japanese refugees (the Nisei) arrive in North America in about AD 1200, and the events of Wasteland (and following books) occurs in the AD 2400's. So over a thousand years have passed...
Unlike Oath of Empire, which is set in an alternate past, the Sixth Sun novels are set in an alternate future and past. The books of the Sixth Sun take place in the "Core" Universe Thomas developed for the games Skies of Tenocha, Core, Corewars, and GURPS:Hellspace. These books will be hard-SF archaeological mystery/space combat stories.
Two of the primary characters are Mitsuharu Hadeishi (an Imperial Méxica Navy commander, serving aboard the Imperial Méxica Navy Astronomer-class light cruiser Henry Cornuelle) and a University of New Aberdeen xeno-archaeologist, Gretchen Anderssen. They have some interesting adventures.
The Time of the Sixth Sun is published by Tor Books.
