Posted by Eric on Facebook on 12/28/15:

I just turned in the manuscript for THE ALEXANDER INHERITANCE, which I co-authored with Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett, who have co-authored (so far) three 1632 series novels with me. (1636: THE KREMLIN GAMES, 1636: THE VIENNESE WALTZ and the forthcoming 1637: THE VOLGA RULES.)

THE ALEXANDER INHERITANCE is related to the 1632 series but is not directly part of it. Like the novel TIME SPIKE, which I co-authored with Marilyn Kosmatka, it's a separate Assiti Shards novel. In this one, another Assiti Shard strikes the Earth in the near future and sends a cruise ship from the Caribbean into the Mediterranean a couple of years after the death of Alexander the Great.

That period in ancient history is often called the Age of the Diadochi. The word "diadochi" is Greek and means "successors." It was a period that lasted about fifty years all told after Alexander's death, and made the world depicted in George R.R. Martin's SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series look positively benign. About two dozen of Alexander's top commanders started fighting each other after his death and by the time it was over almost all of them were dead -- and they killed off Alexander's entire family in the process.

Interesting - Amazon doesn't know anything about it, so the publisher (I'm assuming Baen) hasn't got it scheduled yet

The "heads up" on the release date is much appreciated!

Wish your hard work much success!

Just my opinion of course and probably not worth the paper it's not written on.

eARC is out from Baen, and snippets have begun posting some time back. On track for the July release, from what I can tell.

Picked up my copy at the local Barnes and Noble yesterday,
so this should be available most everywhere now.
