Operation Chaos - Poul Anderson An amazing breath of fantasy from Poul Anderson.

I *loved* this book. Its "what if" is Just Fun (tm): what if the human race wouldn't have gone the way of industrial revolution and giving value of physics/mathematics in scientific thinking, but instead, it was witchcraft who had "won" in medieval times? What if science would be science of psychical realm, not physical realm?

I loved this book. Ah, the idea alone is nothing speshul. Fun, fun, but the body-soul dualism has yielded many sub-theories along this line. The execution is king, and Anderson's storytelling shows his mastery of fantasy writing, and makes the incursion in the imaginary of this particular "what if" unforgettable.

Did I say I LOVED this book?
