Anderson's novel The Day After Doomsday was serialized in Galaxy before being published in book form as After Doomsday. Typical examples are The Winter of the World and The People of the Wind. Anderson's novelette "Kings Who Die" was the cover story for the March 1962 issue of If. Anderson's "Homo Aquaticus", part of his "Kith" sequence, took the cover of the September 1963 issue of Amazing Stories. A common theme in Anderson's works, with obvious origins in the Northern European legends, is that doing the "right" (wisest) thing often involves performing actions that at face value seem dishonorable, illegal, destructive, or downright evil.

Poul Anderson, in The Winter Of The World, develops this new age, and focuses on the continuing need for empires to expand. It would certainly be a different book if written today, but Anderson continues to bring his inner eye to envision alternative futures. The Winter of the World portrays a far-future earth in which the Northerners have evolved just enough to have their differences show what is lacking in the future medieval-human civilization. Donya of Hervar meets a human bent on espionage, in an action-packed, wonderfully war tale and love story. The differences in the two ures bring ecstacy but ultimately sadness to the human half of the love affair. We were trying to get winter of the world by Ken Follet.

Winter of the World describes a far future Earth where an Ice Age has transformed humanity into new and different cultures. This work displays Anderson’s early libertarianism, and a hint of a recurring Nordic centrism. It made me think that Anderson changed his mind midway through. The book starts with a heavy investment in the politics and economy of the city-state of Arvanneth (New Orleans?), a world power in decline and fossilized culture recently absorbed by the Rahidian Empire.

Reviews about The Winter of the World (4):
MegaStar
And this novel is one example more of the brilliancy of his mind and the flow of ideas and concepts he put to paer decades ago.

This novel is brilliant. The theme is not new, nowadays - and i sense where a lot of today's great writers embibed their milk - but written with Poul Andersson's sensititvity and craftmanship it remains beautyfull and fresh.

A great read!

This is one of Anderson's better novels. Set on Earth several thousand years in the future during a glacial period, The Winter of the World uses a relatively conventional adventure story to present a clever idea about human evolution. The clever idea is the development of a new hominid species. Anderson suggests a mechanism of geographic isolation of a small population followed by intense selection to produce a new species. This is a straightforward extension of Mayr's allopatric model of speciation, now accepted as the predominant mode of speciation. Much of the book is devoted to describing the nature of these new hominids. The behavior of these alternative hominids is that of a romanticized and modernized noble savage. The plot is clunky; Anderson had some difficulties in melding his adventure story with the revelation that principal characters are a different kind of hominid. The quality of writing, like much of Anderson's work, is competent rather than good. There is a substantial element of wish fulfillment in this book. Anderson was a politically conservative individual with a pronounced libertarian bent. At the same time, he had strong reservations about the nature of capitalism. Many of his books present a longing for an 'organic society' based on strong individualism but with society based on strong personal ties and respect for the natural world. In this book, he achieves his wish by altering human biology.
Hellstaff
This novel is short. It skims over many action sequences and jumps ahead several months at a time between chapters. Winter seems to have been an outline for a much longer series of novels involving the characters in this post-apocalypic primitive world. The number of names and places thrown in are sometimes confusing even for the seasoned reader

The Winter of the World portrays a far-future earth in which the Northerners have evolved just enough to have their differences show what is lacking in the future medieval-human civilization. Donya of Hervar meets a human bent on espionage, in an action-packed, wonderfully war tale and love story. The differences in the two ures bring ecstacy but ultimately sadness to the human half of the love affair. Women are depicted as strong, independent, and thoughtful, somewhat unusual in a medieval tale. Highly recommended for all but the most ardent warrior-types.
