This is the sixth rollicking, thought-provoking anthology of tales set in Eric Flint's phenomenal New York Times bestselling 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 end of medieval times. 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 and the forces of freedom have a chance to take the evil out of medieval three centuries ahead of schedule.
