History records that in 1588, the vast Spanish Armada was defeated by the English navy. The English set many of their own ships on fire, then sent the ships at the enemy, scattering them. The Spanish fleet were forced to attempt the dangerous return to Spain via the north of Scotland. Battered by violent winds, even further losses were visited upon the already badly beaten fleet, smashed by the waves and run aground on the shore.But what if the Spanish had succeeded in their invasion plan? What if the had defeated the English navy, and successfully conquered England? In this extraordinary work of alternative-history, follow the many surprising and larger-than-life characters as they navigate a world upended by this momentous historical moment, and discover the far-reaching implications of the Spanish Armada's victory in this gripping new novel, Spanish Armada.

Gordon S. Dickson was born near Inverness, Scotland, but left there at a young age when the family moved back to Northern Ireland. He was educated at Secondary and Grammar schools and scraped through English ‘O’ levels, as ‘essay writing’ was not a strong point. He was employed in the Civil Service for a number of years but is now retired and has only recently taken up writing. Verdict Unknown is his first novel. He enjoys reading historical novels, gardening and going to the gym, occasionally, and to the cinema.
