I'm just finishing Eugene Byrne's second novel, Things Unborn. It's 
great. The idea is that after nuclear war in 1962, which wiped out a 
lot of the population, people, retreads, who died young before that 
date have been resurrected. Richard the III is back on the throne, 
William Rufus and Charles I having preferred seclusion. There are 
large numbers of retreads from the English Civil War, they've 
already had one rerun of the conflict and another is brewing. And 
its basically a police thriller, as Inspector Scipio Africanus (not a 
Roman) tries to foil a Puritan plot.  I've nicked my new signature 
quote from one of his chapter headings.

He's a new writer so buy this book and encourage him!
