Stephen Michael Stirling or better known as S.M. Stirling is a noteworthy Canadian-American author, who has written a few successful novels based on the fantasy and science fiction genres. He is particularly popular for writing down the Draka series of novels based on alternate history genre, as well as the Emberverse and Nantucket series’, which are based on time travel and alternate history genres. Stirling was born on September 30, 1953 in Metz, France. At that time, Metz was the site of an Air Force base for a Royal Canadian force. Stirling’s mother was English while his father was of Canadian origin. Having lived in a number of countries throughout his life, he currently stays in New Mexico, United States along with his wife Jan. As a well known author, Stirling is famous for writing his novels in a variety of genres such a alternate history, fantasy and science fiction. Many people believe that the writing career of Stirling has been very inspiring for the new and upcoming authors. His novels often conflict-driven and generally give descriptions about military cultures and situations. The books written by Stirling mainly focus on the adventures and explorations of the military forces. In addition to that, he also describes the cultural values of the societies in his novels significantly. The critics find the descriptions in Stirling’s novels to be different from the modern western thinking and views.

One topic that occurs frequently in Stirling’s books is the influence of the cultures of the society on the values and outlook of an individual and lays a great emphasis on the idea that most of the people and the societies regard themselves moral. Stirling also likes to explore the technological developments in his novels. This can be seen very well in the Draka series, in which the Drak people face and choose a different imperative in the conquest of Africa, and turn to steam power and firearms for breech-loading than the other forces of the rest of the Western countries. Also in the Nantucket series, it is seen that the stranded islanders try to rebuild their base with the help of advanced technology after their island gets stranded in the year 1250 BC. At that time, the inhabitants in the novels had a world deprived of firearms, electricity, and internal combustion. S.M. Stirling also tends to describe strong female characters in his novels, who seem to have prominent roles in the stories of the novels. During the initial years of his writing career, Stirling had collaborated with other authors such as Jerry Pournelle, Raymond E. Feist, David Drake, and Anne McCaffrey. Apart from writing fantasy and historical fiction novels, Stirling has hobbies related to crafting. He is mainly interested in anthropology, sciences, archaeology and history. As far as the physical hobbies are concerned, Stirling is very fond of martial art.

    I liked how well thought out your apocalypse vision was, including the release of zoo animals & the results. I wished you had studied the Haudenosaunee, where authentic Native Old Ways have not been stolen & disrupted & they have over 200 years of PRE- Revolutionary History & interactions recorded in Wampum, Pictographs, & various treaties w/ the Colonists, the French, English, Dutch, etc.& w/ the Continental Congress when they decide to revolt. I think you would have been amazed at the similarity & what you depict of Celtic or Wiccan Spirituality & the Native Spirituality & mysticism. Migwich!
