Editorial Reviews

Review

“A magnificent alternate history, set against the backdrop of one of the greatest maritime disasters.”  — Library Journal

“Time travel, airships, the Titanic, Roswell: from these well-worn bones, Kowalski builds a decidedly original creature that blends military science fiction, conspiracy theory, alternate history, and even a dash of romance.”  — Publishers Weekly

"An excessively exciting reading experience." - Tor.com

“***** A clever mix of sci-fi thriller, epic alternate history tale and intelligent spy adventure.” - Sci-Fi Now

"David Kowalski’s alternative Earth is lovingly crafted, inhabited by plausible characters all its own." - SFX

"A book that fans of science fiction/alternate history almost owe themselves to read." - Fandom Post

"Up there in the top echelon of time travel fiction." - The Daily Rotation

"If you are a history buff, if you’re interested in the story and fact behind the Titanic, enjoy alternate realities or just a darn good sci-fi novel, then The Company of the Dead will absolutely blow you out of the water. You’ll wish that you could go back in time and read it again and again." - 8 Days A Geek

"[The Company of the Dead] combines conspiracies, time travel, science fiction, and historical drama into an exciting, action-packed adventure that you'll have a hard time pulling yourself away from." - Forces of Geek

"The writing is tense, confident and pacy while the story itself is involving and very much action packed with descriptive verse and a real depth...complete with a powerful ending, recommended." - SF Book Reviews

"A virtuoso performance, a near-perfect blend of speculative fiction and adventure story>" - Open Letters Monthly

"Exciting action, twisty and ingenious characterization, and complicated time-travel plotting deftly handled" — S.M. StirlingNew York Times bestselling author of The Tears of the Sun

"This vivid sci-fi-military-thriller packs a lot of punch." - Geeks of Doom

"An excellent piece of alternate history/Sci-Fi literature. As a lifelong history buff I was totally engaged and often found myself marveling at how wonderfully Kowalski had woven together his historical tapestry." - Famous Monsters 

"Think an alternate history Indiana Jones-style adventure wedded
to a complicated time story." - Sci Fi Movie Page 

About the Author
