I need to read this book The paperback version includes the author s Scott O Dell acceptance speech which has one of my favorite statements about historical fictionA lot of people think history is boring It s just names and dates and facts that you have to memorize for a testUp until last October I was primarily a science fiction writer Which means I m in a uniue position to recognize that this holds up The Green Glass Sea is a time machine Because that s really what we want out of historical fiction We want to go there We don t want to be on the outside looking in We want the backstage tour We want to be there as the events of history are unfolding around usIf you accept that this book is a time machine then there s one thing that you need to know the one unbreakable law of time travel you cannot change the pastBut I hope that when you close the cover of The Green Glass Sea and return to your own life you may discover that the past has changed you
