    Hopefully you will be able to come to a LOSCON soon, especially if you haven’t been a guest before. Thanks and keep ‘em coming.
    PS the Barnes and Noble in the Grove doesn’t have nearly enough of your books.

    • Eric Flint says:

      LA is my home town, and I’ve wanted to come to Loscon for a long time. The problem is simply that the convention takes place over Thanksgiving weekend and that’s always difficult because of family obligations. But I should be able to make it pretty soon, I think.

  2. All these years I’ ve read your works and never realised you lived close enough to shake your hand.

    More than 90% of my sci- fi/fantasy collection is owed to your free library project, as after I read them online, I had to get the actual books, which I rather think proved the point you made rather magnificently. I now read many authours I never would have, and found many series favourites there.

    From one grateful NWIN fan, thank you, and hopefully we’ ll meet at a local Book store signing sometime soon so I can convey them in person.

    I was wondering if you were ever in the silver horse bar in wanatah ,in.

  4. Chris says:

    Was wondering how you are feeling since the heart surgery. Did you have to make many life style changes since and how do you keep the pace you do? All the best….

  5. Eric Flint says:

    I feel fine. People have a misapprehension of what happened. I never had a heart attack or any significant problem. In the course of a more-or-less routine stress test, the EKG results showed an anomaly. As a result, I had an angiogram done, which to the cardiologist’s surprise — and mine, for sure — showed atherosclerosis in four arteries including one major artery that was 99% blocked.

    That’s why I had the bypass surgery done. It amount to preventive revascuralization, not something done to fix existing damage to the heart. So far as anyone can tell — and I now have tests done once a year — my heart is in fine shape. I have to monitor it, of course, and I’m now on medication that keeps my blood pressure under control and my cholesterol levels very low.

    • Chris says:

      I had a similar experience, no heart attack, more or less just not feeling well. Nuclear Stress test led to angiogram which led to CABGx4. 100, 90, 75 and 75 were my blockages. Found out on a Tuesday at 2: needed the surgery and had it 6:00 the next morning, done so quickly didn’t even have time to digest it. Home 5 days later. This was April of 2009 and like you feel good today. Watch what I eat, walk constantly and quit smoking so the rest is out of my hands. Good luck.

    • Bret Hooper says:

      Eric: Keeping your cholesterol level too</strong low may not be such a good idea: your body needs cholesterol as the raw material which it converts by photosynthesis to cholecalciferol, “sunshine” vitamin D. At least, be sure to monitor your level of vitamin D activity and calcium metabolism; you probably don’t want to be on the borderline of suffering from rickets.

      Be healthy!

    will there be more of the time spike storyline? and how cool would it be if the grantville characters ran into some of the time spike characters whiling exploring in america? just a random thought but definitly want more in the time spike line

  7. Chris Berman says:

    Hello Eric,

    I’m really looking forward to meeting you in October as we are both guests at Contraflow, in New Orleans. You are actually one of the subjects of a presentation I do when I’ve taught a science fiction writing class, that is putting real history into alternate history. My own background is as a science fiction author and military historian (MA Norwich University). I hope you have time to autograph one of my 1632 series books for me. Have a great summer and see you in October!

  8. JP says:

    Are you going to HonorCon in Greenville SC next month?

  9. justdave says:

    enjoyed meeting you and listening to your view of the Honorverse last weekend

    as we discussed at Greenville, if you do come to LA (Lower Alabama) for the winter and I can be of any assistance just let me know

    thanks

  10. Bret Hooper says:

    Last year (2012) I looked in this department and found you were going to be at Libertycon in Chattanooga, only 100 miles away, and I greatly enjoyed meeting you there. Now there is nothing about any future appearances, only where you have been already this year. Very few of us, your fans, will be planning to visit past events in the hope of seeing you there. How about where you will be in the next few months?

  11. Really looking forward to meeting you at Necronomicon 2014 in October as our Guest of Honor!

    continuously i used to read smaller articles that also clear their motive, and
    that is also happening with this post which I am reading at this place.
