Lords of Creation

One of my favorite authors, S.M. Stirling has release two preview chapters to his upcoming book The Sky People, the first in a new trilogy, "Lords of Creation".

The setting looks very cool -- an AH with the solar system as it should have been. Mars and Venus have been terraformed millions of years in the past by unknown agents and populated by Earth creatures over the years. In 1962, the first Soviet probe penetrates the cloud cover of Venus and records a band of primitive humans battling for their lives against neanderthal-like attackers. Flash forward to 1988, and both the US and USSR have established large bases on Mars and Venus in a late 20th century where the Cold War gave way to a Space Race on steroids.
