Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This collection of more than a dozen tales set in Eric Flint's Ring of Fire universe tracks the stories of resourceful West Virginians suddenly set down in the war-torn 17th century Europe. An entertaining mix of unconventional military sci-fi with human interest and humor; now in mass-market paperback.

Library Journal
The transportation of the West Virginia city of Grantville to 17th-century Europe, described in Flint's now-classic alternate history 1632, launched a series of anthologies exploring the world not covered by the "Ring of Fire" novels. An enterprising young woman decides to explore aviation technology in Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett's "The Monster," while Officer Julie Drahuta investigates the strange appearances of "ghostly" smudges that appear in the windows of a Grantville flower shop in Tim Roesch's "Ghosts on the Glass." With a new story by Flint, "The Masque," the 24 tales here examine a universe in which two centuries separated by 500 years meet in the same time and place. VERDICT This sixth collection will please "Ring of Fire" series fans and Grantville Gazette followers.
