Flint Lights the Way to Adventure!New York Times best-seller, master-class alternate historian, and creator of the "Ring of Fire" saga Eric Flint delivers an explosion of tales filled with well-turned action, wit and wonder. First: a heart-wrenching saga of love, guts and daring as a husband and wife, forced into an arranged marriage, fall in love for the first time while fighting their way toward one another in the midst of an alternate Roman war. Flint follows with stories set in David Weber's legendary "Honorverse" and Flint's own "1632" series. It's all topped with the gem of a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery novella (and Writer's of the Future grand prize winner) that first announced Eric Flint's arrival on the SF scene like a cannon-shot a dawn!At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
Bestseller Flint (1635: The Dreeson Incident), best known for his alternate history novels, assembles a highly enjoyable collection of tales based on his longer-form work and that of his fellow writers and collaborators. Fans of Flint's 1632 series will enjoy a connected series of tales describing a nurse, her portraits by various masters and a most peculiar siege. Carthago Delenda Est recapitulates unionizing as a legion of Roman soldiers, forced into slavery on low-tech planets, use their discipline and guile to organize, agitate and overcome their alien abductors. Particularly powerful and moving are Islands, in which a Roman patrician blinded in battle earns himself a place in history and transforms his marriage, and From the Highlands, set in the world of David Weber's Honor Harrington stories, which neatly inverts preconceptions about heroes and villains.
