Blackout by Connie Willis

"Oxford in 2060, and Mr Dunworthy's time travel lab is a chaotic place, sending scores of historians to the Crusades, to Rome, and to World War II...

When Michael, Merope and Polly reach their destinations they discover that no amount of study could have prepared them for the reality of daily life in World War II. It's not just the incessant air raids, the blackouts and frightful rations; the once-reliable mechanics of time travel are showing significant glitches ... and everything is spiralling out of control."

Blackout by Connie Willis is out soon on Gollancz for £8.99. Her companion volume All Clear will also see publication by Gollancz.
