James Clayton Rogersabout this book: As a child, I was fascinated by dinosaurs. When I was around 10, my mother gave me a book about U.S. battleships of the Spanish American War. Years later, the two interests belatedly conflated into At the Midway, a sci-fi historical adventure in which the technology of the early 20th century confronts a biological armory millions of years in the making. Much of the novel is spent comparing the "weaponry"—I wanted to make the Florida as much a living creature as the monsters themselves. The final clash between the U.S. Navy and the Tu-nel takes place on Midway Island, at the time one of the remotest U.S. territories on earth. But before this takes place, both men and beasts confront other adversaries as the USS Florida sets sail with the White Fleet (as part of one of the earliest steam fleets to circle the globe), while the Tu-nel make their long, circular migration in the Pacific Ocean.
