What is "In the time of the Sixth Sun"?

General Background Note! The cover blurb on Wasteland of Flint indicates the events of the book take place only 500 years after the Méxica encounter the Japanese. This is entirely untrue! The Japanese refugees (the Nisei) arrive in North America in about AD 1200, and the events of Wasteland (and following books) occurs in the AD 2400's. So over a thousand years have passed...

Unlike Oath of Empire, which is set in an alternate past, the Sixth Sun novels are set in an alternate future and past. The books of the Sixth Sun take place in the "Core" Universe Thomas developed for the games Skies of Tenocha, Core, Corewars, and GURPS:Hellspace. These books will be hard-SF archaeological mystery/space combat stories.

Need a reference to the people, places and things of the Sixth Sun universe? See the Concordance.

Two of the primary characters are Mitsuharu Hadeishi (an Imperial Méxica Navy commander, serving aboard the Imperial Méxica Navy Astronomer-class light cruiser Henry Cornuelle) and a University of New Aberdeen xeno-archaeologist, Gretchen Anderssen. They have some interesting adventures.

Wasteland of Flint was published in hardback in 2003. House of Reeds came out in hardback in 2004. Land of the Dead came out in 2009.

The Time of the Sixth Sun is published by Tor Books.

For the Lords of the Earth fanatics out there, the Core Universe is a projected future history of Campaign One.
