Spoils of War is Jack Norman's latest blockbuster!
The American Government has long been secretly aware of the tear in the fabric of space and time that mysteriously occurs in the area we know as the Bermuda Triangle. They know of the strange and relatively primitive world that exists on the other side of the Divide. They are keen to understand and exploit the unspoiled dimension. Equally, the war-like rulers of that alternative medieval-like world are just as eager to get their hands on the advanced weaponry available on Earth.
However, nothing is ever simple. The only way to get across from one to the other is via a light craft bobbing on the North Atlantic Ocean. Neither side has the means of transporting anything other than a few selected individuals between the two worlds, travelling naked and unarmed. Weight factors and the nature of permissible materials impose strict limitations. America’s best scientific brains have been unable to solve the conundrum.
So an uneasy relationship has developed between the two worlds. Emissaries move back and forth across the Divide, sometimes by agreement and often by stealth. The CIA’s Department of Science & Technology is deeply involved, of course, as are some learned academic institutions in the USA. Alchemists visit from the other direction, eager to learn and take the knowledge back in their heads.
As part of this mutual exchange, the CIA has established an anthropological study project in one of the few peaceful cities on that strange planet. At least, the city was peaceful until besieged and conquered by a barbaric army, and two young female American anthropologists are taken as spoils of war.
