Eric Flint is the author of the New York Times best seller 1634: The Galileo Affair (with Andrew Dennis)—a novel in his top-selling "Ring of  Fire" alternate  history series. His first novel for Baen, Mother of Demons, was picked by Science Fiction Chronicle as a best novel of the year. His 1632, which launched the ring of Fire series, won widespread critical praise, as from Publishers Weekly, which called him "an SF author of particular note, one who can entertain and edify in equal, and major measure." A longtime labor union activist with a master's degree in history, he currently resides in northwest Indiana with his wife Lucille.

    The way it could have been

    Between Turtledove and Flint, some of the most interesting stories ever. Flint (and co-authors') series are a marvel of alternate history. "What if..." is always difficult to get beyond the initial concept, but they have done a masterful job. Based on real people, not all of which are historically well-known, but whose characteristics are, these "could have been" tales are fascinating to me. Not your typical sci-fi, time travel fare, the characters are well-developed, and a good balance between realistic action, intrigue, and the mundane. Papal Stakes continues the series with the known threat of the powerful Borgias (sp) to the Papacy becoming overt. No super-power, the USE still has technological advantages it tries to exploit in a very real Renaissance world, and their survival depends on learning to utilize their knowledge and limited resources in a warring world without much of what we are accustomed to. The history books can only help so much, since they are being rewritten by (fictional) real events. I am (I admit) addicted....

    Good read

    If you haven't read the series then some of the references may not mean as much. Story can stand alone but read the other books. Looking forward to the next one in the series, they can't come fast enough
