A new addition to the multiple New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series. After carving a place for itself in
war-torn 17th century Europe, citizens of the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia, the up-timers and their allies take on continental America and the Japan!

A cosmic catastrophe, the Ring of Fire, strands the West Virginia town of Grantville in the middle of Europe during the Thirty Years War. The repercussions of that event transform Europe and, in a few years, begin spreading across the world. By 1636, the Ring of Fire's impact is felt across two great oceans, the Atlantic and Pacific.

Stretching Out: The United States of Europe seeks out resources -- oil, rubber and even aluminum ore -- to help it wage war against the foes of freedom. Daring pioneers cross the Atlantic and found a new colony on the Wild Coast of South America. The colonists hope that with the up-timers' support and knowledge they can prosper in the tropics without resort to Indian and African slavery. Then a slave ship visits the colony, seeking water.... and the colonists must make a fateful choice.

Rising Sun: In 1633, the wave of change emanating from the Ring of Fire reaches Japan. The Shogun is intrigued by samples of up-time technology, but it's a peek at what fate had in store for Japan in the old time line that has the greatest impact -- setting events in motion whose tremors are felt thousands of miles away and for years to come, as Japan pulls back from a policy of isolation and stakes out its own claim in the brave new world created by the Ring.


Enjoy, Poker

From David Carrico on Baen's Bar about the book The Devil's Opera:

David Carrico wrote:[Previous post asked what the dust jacket discription was.]

This is the latest I've seen. Not sure it's the final version. Remember, The Devil's Opera closely parallels the time frame of The Saxon Uprising. There's not a great deal of overlap between the two, but you'll see a few of the events in TSU from different locations and different eyes.

The story begins not long after the events of the story "Elegy", and ends around the same time as TSU.

========================================================
It is the year 1636. The United States of Europe, the new nation formed by an alliance between the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and the West Virginians hurled back in time by a cosmic accident, is on the verge of civil war. His brain injured in the war with Poland, the USE's emperor Gustavus Adolphus is no longer in command. Enter Swedish chancellor Oxenstierna, a leader of aristocratic reaction against democracy. His goal: to assemble the forces of the hidebound ruling class in Berlin and drown the revolution in a bloodbath.

In Magdeburg, the capital of the USE, Mike Stearns' wife Rebecca Abrabanel is organizing popular resistance to Oxenstierna's plot. As part of the resistance, the American musician Marla Linder and her company of down-time musical partners are staging an opera that will celebrate the struggle against oppression. Princess Kristina, the heir to the USE's throne, is now residing in Magdeburg and is giving them her support and encouragement.

But another plot is underway--this one right in the heart of the capital itself, and with murder as its method. The only people standing in the way are a crippled boy and the boxing champion who befriended him, and an unlikely pair of policemen. Can the American detective Byron Chieske and his down-timer partner Gotthilf Hoch thwart the killers before they succeed in their goal?
========================================================

Hi all,

Over on Baen's Bar Eric Flint posted what's coming:

On Sun, 28 April 2013 18:29 Eric Flint wrote:Here's what's coming up:

In a few days, PORTAL will be published. That's the concluding volume in the Bemmie trilogy that began with BOUNDARY. Ryk and I are now working on a novel that takes place in the same setting but is placed about two centuries after PORTAL, so it's no a direct sequel.

In June, the next Heirs of Alexandria novel comes out. That's BURDENS OF THE DEAD, which is partly a sequel to MUCH FALL OF BLOOD and partly a parallel volume.

In October, the next 1632 series novel comes out, 1636: THE DEVIL'S OPERA.

In January, Iver Cooper's volume in the series comes out. That's 1636: SEAS OF FORTUNE. It consists of two braided short novels, one taking place in the northeast part of South America and the other (mostly) in California.

Sometime around then, the Stellar Guild series will be issuing a volume which has a steampunk novella by me and one by Chuck Gannon in it. If you're not familiar with the series, here's the URL: http://www.phoenixpick.com/

As far as work in progress goes, right now I'm working on the next volume in the Harrington universe. The working title is CAULDRON OF GHOSTS and it's simultaneously a sequel to TORCH OF FREEDOM and SHADOW OF FREEDOM. Once that's done I have to finish a novella for Bill Fawcett's next CLAN OF THE CLAW anthology. After that, I'll be writing a novel with Mike Resnick titled THE GODS OF SAGITTARIUS.

Meanwhile, David Carrico is working on the first draft of THE SPAN OF EMPIRE, which is the third book in the Jao series. Chuck Gannon is writing the first draft of a 1632 series novel set in the Caribbean. Walter Hunt has finished the first draft of 1636: THE ATLANTIC ENCOUNTER, which I'll finish after Chuck finishes the draft of the Caribbean book.

And I'm probably forgetting something...

Sometime this summer, we'll start releasing a series of 1632 e-books. These will be compilations of stories and articles which appeared in the Gazette (although some of them are extensively rewritten ). There will be two types of e-books. One type will reissue stories that were serialized in the magazine but were never included in paper editions of the Gazette because they were two long. The other type will be compilations of non-fiction articles on the same subject (or closely related group of subjects).

These will also be available in paper editions on a print-on-demand basis.

Eric

Coming June 3, 2014:

New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling alternate history series. Book #14 in the Ring of Fire series created by Eric Flint.

Eddie Cantrell, now married to the king of Denmark’s daughter, is sent by Admiral Simpson to the Caribbean to secure access to the most valuable commodity on that continent—not the gold and silver which the Spanish treasure, but the oil which up-time machines and industry need. The admiral has also provided Eddie’s small task force with the new steam-powered frigates that have just come out of the navy’s shipyards.

Even with the frigates, a giant obstacle stands in his way: the Gulf-girdling Spanish presence in the New World. So a diversion is needed, carried out by an up-time car mechanic and a down-time mercenary colonel who also happens to be the last earl of Ireland. Their mission: grab the oil fields on Trinidad, and so distract the attention of Spain’s New World governors.

While the Spanish galleons and troops head for Trinidad, Commander Cantrell’s smallest and fastest steam sloop will make a run to the Louisiana coast. There, her crew will wind their way up the bayous to the real New World prize: the Jennings Oil Field.

But Cantrell’s plans could be wrecked in a multitude of ways. He faces often-hostile natives, rambunctious Dutch ship captains, allied colonies on the brink of starvation, and vicious social infighting that can barely be contained by his capable and passionate new wife. When the galleons finally come out in force to engage his small flotilla, Eddie will discover that the Spanish aren’t the only enemies who will be coming against him in a fateful Caribbean show-down.

Enjoy,

Poker
