The Tale of the Eternal Champion series vol 6.

The astonishing adventures of Captain Oswald Bastaple (ex-53rd Lancers and Special Air Police).. How with grit and integrity one brave English airshipman struggled for snaity in a world turned upside down - threatened by an infamous international anarchist conspiracy to destroy the Pax Britannica maintained by our mighty aerial cruisers! It is 1973, and the stately airships of the Great Powers hold benign sway over a peaceful world. The balance of power is maintained by the British Empire - amost equitable and just Empire, ruled by the beloved King Edward VIII. A new world order, with peace and prosperity for all under the law. Yet, moved by the politics of envy and perverse utopianism, not all our Empire's citizens support the marvellous equilibrium. Flung from the North East Frontier of 1902 into this world of the future Captain Bastable is forced to question his most cherished ideals, discovering to his horror that he has become a nomad of the time streams, eternally doomed to travel the wayward currents and nameless brances of a chaotic multiverse. Guided only by the red republican chrononaut, Una Persson, he must confront a multitude of alternate futures before at last gaining an understanding of his fate
