The Eyre Affair
The time is 1985 in England - an England that is still at war in the Crimea and in which Wales is a republic. There are time rippers, dodos have been brought back from extinction and a multinational corporation called Goliath seems to have its finger in every pie. Society is virtually obssessed with literature and dead authors are regarded as uber celebrities. The written word seems to rule in this time and prose and poetry is highly regarded and is considered the backbone of society.
