When we showed you the cover of Joe M. McDermott’s The Fortress at the End of Time, a new novel-length release from Tor.com Publishing, we just knew it was going to be a great read. Since then, we’ve gotten a chance to plow through an advance copy, and our gut feelings were right on the money: this is a fantastic book, military SF quite unlike anything we’ve read before.

I don’t think anyone knows what actually happened We like to analyze and talk, and talk and talk
But we were not there, and even where we walked
the streets of history, our ego renders us blindered
So much of what we sense never breaks the veil
of conscious thought, and so little of that breaks
the parchment of memory. History is written by flakes
of snow upon a plain that blow a pattern on a windowsill
The pattern is invented by the human will for sense
But we see the faces, there, we see the picture of the world
And forget that all we see is a fog of snowflakes, dispensed
By weather we can’t even measure, feel a wind hurled
Memory is a story that accumulates into a history
From this mythic place we gather futures out of worries.
