Introduction by Harry Turtledove.

AGAINST THE FALL OF NIGHT

PADWAY:
The Roman Empire had spread order, knowledge. and civilization throughout the ancient world. When Rome fell, the light of reason flickered out across the Empire. The Dark Ages had begun; they would last a thousand years. Could a man from the 20th century prevent the fall of Rome? When lightning struck and he was hurled backward into the sixth century, the question became anything but academic to Martin Padway, but even forearmed with a knowledge of 20th century technology and of events to come, what could one man do? But Padway must try, lest darkness fall...

HEROSILLA:
Like Padway, she has been thrown into the far past by a lightning bolt — but for her, that past is the realm of prehistoric legends, legends of the birth of Rome, a time when peasants scratched out a crude, meager living in the seven hills. Just as Padway must fight against the fall of night, her fate was to struggle to the foundations that would bring Rome into being. Romulus and Remus are the legend; Flavia must deal with the gritty, smelly reality to bring the light!
