Contact Eric

    Dear Sirs, in the last month your site characters does no longer scale down to accomodate the size of a smartphone. It was allr ight before, something happened. Sorry for posting this here, I did not find another place. Could you put it right?
    Thank you. Your lifelong reader

    I have visited (bar.baen) to try to contact you about my book. I have been unable to find out how to email you my book for review through the site. I meet you at the Nebula awards in Chicago May 12th 2016. I would appreciate any help you could provide.

    I just wanted to thank you for the James Schmitz and Christopher Anvil collections. I reread them every couple of years and thoroughly enjoy them each time. I am in the middle of such a cycle and decided it was time to tell you how much I appreciate the work you did arranging for each series. It’s been wonderful to have the complete bibliography of each author republished for everyone’s enjoyment. Thank you for all the work involved!

  6. Mario says:

    This site characters still do not scale down to a smartphone screen size, as it usually happens with all sites. They appear too big for easy reading on my iPhone screen. They scaled down all right until the beginning of the year though, so something wrong must have been done then. I would be grateful if you could put this right

    Hi Eric, my name is Cos,

    I’ve developed an application for writers to organize and visualize their stories – It’s called Storyline Creator and it’s a pretty cool app you (and perhaps your readers) might be interested in.
    We’re at, and I have a press kit I’d like to send your way to check out if you’d be interested. Let me know!


  8. Paul L. Quandt says:

    If Grantville appeared in central Europe ( in the area later called
    Germany ), in the year 1631 ( which is indicated on page 264 in the hardcover book ), why did you title the book “1632”?

    Paul L. Quandt

    • Andrew Fintamag says:

      Paul it is probably called 1632 because the last chapter ends in the year 1632. I have bought all the audio books of 1632 series on audible. I was wondering if anyone knew from bean publisher if the Ottoman onslaught would be released on audible on January 3. I like the books but I love George’s narration. Thanks.


      I know Eric is not responsible for audio products.

  9. Wesley Martinez says:

    Dear Mr. Eric Flint,

    I am most curious to know if any further progress has been made in scheduling the release of The Alexander Inheritance. Your other works have been most interesting and this is one that I have been looking forward to for some time. Thus, seeing as how no new information has been posted I thought I might inquire. To conclude, it is with great excitement that I look forward to its eventual release just as I do with all of your novels in the 1632 series.

    Cordially yours,

    Wesley Martinez
    Pro Spes, Laos Deo
