In this captivating Alternative History / Science Fiction adventure, Gene Skellig takes us back to the year A.D. 82 (835 AUC) , when elements of Legio XX Valeria Victrix and Legio II Adiutrix were combined to form Legio XXVII Hibernicus Victrix Domitianus, and sent on a quest to conquer the land of Éire, Ireland. Despite the presence of Publius (Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus and other scribes in Britannia at that time, the events which took place at Dubh Linn, the lowland approaches to the sacred hills of Tara, have largely been stripped from the historical record. In Return of the Romans - Fascism comes to America, we discover what may have actually happened, and what the ultimate consequences could be for our future.
You will be taken on an odyssey that spans the millennia and explores the cosmos. Beginning with the Roman Empire of the 1st Century and taking us to the present day United States of America, this is a story about the uninhibited use of ultimate power - Roman style - revealing the classical tenets of fascism. A highly entertaining adventure, Return of the Romans will provoke your imagination regarding what can be possible on nearby planets, what are the long-term consequences of how we live on Terra today, and what it would be like to suddenly find ourselves under the heel of a truly fascist regime. It is left for the reader to decide whether to resist or to embrace the Return of the Romans - Fascism Comes to America.
