Pavane by Keith Roberts

A classic of alternate history, this novel is set in a twentieth century where the Roman Catholic Church controls the western world, and has done so so Queen Elizabeth was assassinated in 1588.

That single tragedy set off a whole series of events, resulting in the Spanish Armada’s defeat of England and subsequent demise of Protestantism. Now it’s the 20th century, and the Church of Rome reigns supreme. People live a pastoral existence of guilds and farming, with technology held back to the level of the steam locomotive and primitive radio. Still, science cannot be held back forever…a revolution is building.

Pavane by Keith Roberts is one of William Gibson’s favorite books
