THE WAR LORD OF THE AIR

Granada / Panther paperback, 1984. Cover illustration by
Melvyn Grant.

"THE ADVENTURES OF OSWALD BASTABLE, TRANSPORTED TO A WORLD EPICAL-HISTORICAL-FANTASTICAL 
This is the amazing story of Captain Oswald Bastable, late of the 53rd Lancers - stowaway, opium addict and time traveller extraordinary. 
Beginning in Nepal in 1903, Bastibale is jettisoned into a brave new world seventy years in the future: where the British Empire is stronger than ever, cities soar skyward, and the airship rules supreme. 
But when Bastable discovers to his dismay that his own ship is alive with fugitive anarchists, two cultures and two moralities clash. Together they, and all mankind, await the fearful advent of the War Lord of the Air."
