Assassination By Subtraction
This history of science saga unravels the mystery of how alien visitors on Earth decided that President Lincoln had to be eliminated. Late in the 19th century of the previous Reality, the downward spiral of Earth towards global warming and catastrophic sea level rise was no longer possible to ignore.
Working through their top Preland Interventionist agent, the Nereids acted to counter Lincoln's support for faster fossil fuel exploitation. John Booth, ecoterrorist and high-ranking member of NO COAL, volunteered to assassinate the President.
Assassination By Subtraction is the story of how the role of alien Intervention in shaping the course of Earth's history was investigated by the careful and persistent U. S. Army Inspector Natalie Warne and her sister, Pinkerton detective Kate Warne.

After extensive research, Dead Widower Society member Meena Mahasvin provides us with a set of blockbuster revelations from Deep Time.
We pick up the story only slightly more than a century after Earthlings were given access to the Jarnell Intersplit. Human civilization has spread to the Rigel and Vega star systems, but caution is now slowing exploration of the galaxy. It is clear that humans are not alone. Mysterious and unseen aliens have already visited -and, in some cases, even created- the many exoplanets being colonized by explorers from Earth.
From the forward: The man Howard Evans is known to fans of Jack Vance from the short story 'Noise'. The version of Howard's First Contact experience as recorded here was obtained from records of events in the Asimov Reality. -M.M
