About the Author

Eric Flint was born in southern California in 1947. He received a bachelor's degree from UCLA in 1968 and did some work toward a Ph.D. in history, with a specialization in history of southern Africa in the 18th and early 19th centuries, also at UCLA. After leaving the doctoral program over mostrar mais political issues, he supported himself from that time until age 50 as a laborer, machinist and labor organizer. In 1993, his short story entitled Entropy and the Strangler won first place in the Winter 1992 Writers of the Future contest. His first novel, Mother of Demons, was published in 1997 and was picked by the Science Fiction Chronicle as a best novel of the year. He became a full-time writer in 1999.

Continues the canon nicely through a chaotic Russian political scenario. Despite the cast of characters list, its multiplicity and critical absences made this a slow and difficult book to read, almost, negating a good storyline.

In 1632, a small town in contemporary West Virginia is "magically" transported to 1632's Thüringen and lands in the middle of the Thirty Years War. With a premises like this, the book was irresistible and, much to my surprise, proved to be an enjoyable read. The story has elements of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in KIng Arthur's Court, computer gaming, with a bit of love story mixed in. The book is particularly strong in it's descriptions of battles, both real and fictional.

2023-10-29: A rough start but it eventually grew on me and was quite enjoyable. We're getting the story in a conversational fashion, with lots of side trips, from the agent of a professional strangler who has an obsession with philosophy. The agent is of a more practical bent and just wants them to do the job and get paid and then go to The Trough (best ale in New Sfincter) but the strangler's philosophical penchant often interferes with that plan. There is no serious philosophy to be found in this book and if you're still looking for it after chapter 1 you're not paying attention.

I guess Forward the Mage tells the bit that happened in Prygg so I'll put that on my list.
