The sixth rollicking, thought-provoking anthology of tales set in Eric Flint’s phenomenal New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series—all inspired and edited by the creator himself, Eric Flint. A cosmic accident sets the modern West Virginia town of Grantville down in war-torn seventeenth century Europe. It will take all the gumption of the resourceful, freedom-loving up-timers to find a way to flourish in the mad and bloody beginning of the Renaissance. Are they up for it? You bet they are.

Edited by Eric Flint, and inspired by his now-legendary 1632, this is the fun stuff that fills in the pieces of the Ring of Fire political, social and cultural puzzle as supporting characters we meet in the novels get their own lives, loves and life-changing stories. The future and democracy have arrived with a bang.

Editorial Reviews

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.
