    1. Kenneth Tam’s The Grasslands (Iceberg Publishing, 2008) is the first in the prolific author’s Her Majesty’s New World series. Known more for science fiction (The Defence Command and Equations series), Tam ventures into alternate historical fiction but eventually embraces his comfort zone – and that’s where this phenomenal book stumbles.The book’s back cover informs us that in 1881, gateways to a new world have been discovered in both the American and British Empire’s sides of the R [...]
