About the Author:

Eric Flint is a modern master of alternate history fiction.  He’s the author/creator of the New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series. With David Drake he has written six popular novels in the “Belisarius” alternate Roman history series, including, and with David Weber collaborated on 1633 and 1634: The Baltic War.  Flint was for many years a labor union activist. He lives in Chicago, Illinois.

From Booklist:

Flint’s normal unit of creation is the universe or, at least, world, realized in one capacious novel or, usually, more. This massive volume collects all the shorter stories set in his various worlds as well as in settings created by others, notably the space-faring future of David Weber’s Honor Harrington series in the 139-page “From the Highlands.” Some—the 1632 pieces, for example—have already appeared in adjuncts to that best-selling saga, such as Ring of Fire (2003). Others, including the pieces from the Joe’s World universe in which the fine and hilarious The Philosophical Strangler (2001) plays out, have the virtue of relative novelty, not to mention the other virtues that have come to distinguish Flint’s work, including an ability to draw on historical material to address serious ethical issues; fine action scenes; well-drawn or, as the situation dictates, well-sketched characters; and a zany sense of humor Flint doesn’t suppress. The swarms of Flint fans should make adding this to the shelves a foregone conclusion. --Roland Green
