Aftershocks - Harry Turtledove

Hodder & Stoughton, 2001, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little bruised at head and tail with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Leans slightly.

From the cover: “The Greater German Reich has finally been nuked to a standstill, Chinese Maoists still revolt against Lizard rule, Japan has atomic weapons, the Soviets are playing devious games under President Molotov, and the US has gained a foothold in space. There’s a soap-operatic tangle of plot strands, with established characters both human and alien meeting in ever-changing combinations, much blackmail and smuggling of ginger (to Lizards, a powerfully addictive drug), and flashes of everyday job-hunting, friendship and romance. Big questions loom: which country attacked the colony ships and must pay heavily for it? Where is the one nuclear weapon captured by Jews 20 years ago? Will the Lizards cut their losses by reducing Earth to radioactive wasteland? And just what is the US doing so secretly in the asteroid belt? Little jokes appear amid the suspense — for example, the Warren Commission has nothing to do with Kennedy’s assassination but is a Lizard team investigating the shocking actions of this world’s US President Warren”
