The Philosophical Strangler
The Philosophical Strangler
When Greyboar, a professional strangler, discovers the Supreme Philosophy of Life, he becomes a new man--but how can a villain in good standing pay the bills with his philosophical exploration getting in the way? Then Greyboar's long-lost sister asks him to help persecuted dwarves escape their human oppressors.

Forward The Mage
Forward The Mage
The swashbuckling artist Benvenuti Sfondrati-Piccolomini arrives in the land of Grotum, hoping for royal patronage. Unfortunately, thanks to sorcerous machinations, the King of Goimr's wits have fled and so has Zulkeh, the sorcerer who holds the key to getting the king and his wits back in time to prevent an Ozarine invasion. With two trusty companions the gorgeous Gwendolyn Greyboar, sister to the strangler and militant revolutionary for the liberation of the dwarfs (and whose scantily clad body on the cover is far more eye-catching than the fully clothed mage or dwarf), and the deceptively affable giant, Wolfgang Benvenuti sets out on a quest to save the king's mental health. Along the way, they enjoy a fair amount of first-class sex and encounter a variety of obstacles that seem chosen more for zaniness than for plausibility.

1812 The Rivers Of War
1812 The Rivers Of War
In the War of 1812, U.S. troops are battling the British on the Canadian border, even as a fierce fight is being waged against the Creek followers of the Indian leader Tecumseh and his brother, known as The Prophet. In Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte’s war has become a losing proposition, and the British are only months away from unleashing a frightening assault on Washington itself. Fateful choices are being made in the corridors of power and on the American frontier. As Andrew Jackson, backed by Cherokee warriors, leads a fierce attack on the Creek tribes, his young republic will soon need every citizen soldier it can find.

1824 The Arkansas War
1824 The Arkansas War
Buffered by Spanish possessions to the south and by free states and two rivers to the north, Arkansas has become a country of its own: a hybrid confederation of former slaves, Native American Cherokee and Creek clans, and white abolitionists–including one charismatic warrior who has gone from American hero to bête noire. Irish-born Patrick Driscol is building a fortune and a powerful army in the Arkansas Confederacy, inflaming pro-slavers in Washington and terrifying moderates as well. Caught in the middle is President James Monroe, the gentlemanly Virginian entering his final year in office with a demagogic House Speaker, Henry Clay, nipping at his heels and fanning the fires of war. But Driscol, whose black artillerymen smashed both the Louisiana militia in 1820 and the British in New Orleans, remains a magnet for revolution. And fault lines are erupting throughout the young republic–so that every state, every elected official, and every citizen will soon be forced to choose a side.

The Sorceress Of Karres
The Sorceress Of Karres
If he’d known he was getting stuck with a pair of psi-wielding super-beings, even straightlaced do-gooder Captain Pausert might have thought twice about rescuing his two young “witch” charges from slavery on a dark planet. But what’s done is done – and with galactic peace once again threatened in the mysterious and pirate-ridden Chaladoor region, only a dangerous mission backward in time can save the present and – maybe – get stalwart-but-obtuse Pausert to see one of these young “witches” as more than just a friend.

The Rats The Bats And The Ugly
The Rats The Bats And The Ugly
The intrepid team of mentally uplifted rats and bats, and their vat-born human leader had not only pulled off the only victory the beleaguered colony's feeble military forces had won against the invading aliens, but had also uncovered the secret that the invaders were really a feint, being under the control of the other aliens which the naive humans had thought were their allies. Unfortunately, that was the easy part, because now they had to convince their boneheaded military bureaucracy (burdened with incompetents and riddled with quisling humans) of their discovery, and keep from being court-martialed, drugged into submission, or executed by the human traitors. And they had to do this quickly, before the aliens launched their surprise attack. Fortunately, they had found a way around the alien's mental programming. What's more, the daring and resourceful Fluff, apparently the ineffectual pet of one of the colony's ruling class, was on their side. Only Fluff can save us now. . . .

Pyramid Scheme
Pyramid Scheme
An alien pyramid has appeared in the middle of Chicago. It is growing, destroying the city as it does-and nothing seems able to stop it, not even the might of the US military. Somehow, the pyramid is snatching people and - for unknown reasons - transporting them into worlds of mythology. One of the victims, Dr Lukacs, is an expert on mythology, but myths are not something he'd expected to encounter personally. Sure, he has a couple of tough paratroopers along with him, as well as a blond Amazon biologist. But their modern weapons don't work, and the Greek gods are out to kill them all...

Pyramid Power
Pyramid Power
The Pyramid is baacckk! Well, actually, it never went away—but it had seemed to be inactive, still sitting in the middle of Chicago but no longer growing and wiping out buildings as it grew. The Krin device would have been thwarted, if things had been left as they were—but a V.I.P., who knows too many state secrets to be allowed to be missing, was left behind in the world of Greek mythology. So a power-mad Washington bureaucrat has press-ganged several of the survivors of the first excursion into the pyramid’s worlds and sent them, along with a team trained in “surgical strikes,” to either bring back the V.I.P. or, if that’s impossible, terminate him with extreme prejudice.

The Shadow Of The Lion
The Shadow Of The Lion
The prolific Lackey (the Bardic Voices series, the Urban Faerie series, etc.) and cohorts Flint (1632) and Freer (The Forlorn) whip up a luscious bouillabaisse of politics, intrigue, love and black magic set in an "Other-worldly, New-Age Venice." Like the actual 16th-century city-state, the authors' Venice of the 1530s is a dangerous place, filled with as many illicit love affairs as murders. Garbage and occasional dead bodies float in the stinking canals. The city is also a target for would-be foreign conquerors: the Vatican, the Holy Roman Empire, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and Poland, and the small city-state of Ferrara, ruled by Enrico Dell'este, who surreptitiously watches his grandsons, Marco and Benito, the story's water-rat heroes. Around Benito, a thief, and Marco, a canal doctor, swirl a host of characters, major and minor: the men and women who ply the gondolas and rafts; the spy Caesare Aldanto, the boys' supporter; plus courtesans, whores, monks, priests, knights, shamans, undines and the demon Chernobog. Meanwhile, the winged lion of St. Mark's, symbol of Venice, is stirring, and its shadow falls on Marco as the city's future ruler.

This Rough Magic
This Rough Magic
Venice had been thrown into chaos by the scheming of Chernobog, who came within a hair of seizing absolute power, but was thwarted by the guardian Lion-spirit, who awoke to protect his city from the power-mad demon. But the power of the Lion does not extend beyond Venice, and Chernobog has a new ally in the King of Hungary, who has laid siege to the island of Corfu as the first step in his plan to seize control of the Adriatic from Venice. Trapped on the island is the small band of heroes who awoke the Lion and blocked Chernobog's power grab before. They are far from the Lion's power to help them, but as Manfred and Erik lead a guerrilla movement to fight the Hungarian invaders, Maria discovers that the ancient magical powers of the island are coming to life again, stirred by the siege. If she can make an alliance with them, she may be able to repel the invaders-but not without paying a bitter personal price. . . .

Much Fall of Blood
Much Fall of Blood
Prince Manfred and his mentor and bodyguard, the deadly warrior Erik, survived dangers and enemies both natural and supernmatural, and if they thought that their new mission was going to be anything but more of the same, they soon gave up on that hope. Returning from Jerusalem, they and their escort of knights of the Holy Trinity are escorting an envoy of II Khan Mongol to the lands of the Golden Horde-between the Black Sea and the Carpathians, which happen to be eastern bastion against their old enemies, the demon Chernobog and his possessed puppet, the Jangellion.

The Crucible of Empire
The Crucible of Empire
Humanity is first subjugated by haughty alien colonizers calling themselves the Jao when Earth is unexpectedly attacked by the implacable and nearly-unstoppable Ekhat, exterminators of all intelligent life not their own. Now the fragile Human-Jao alliance is put to the test. A devastating encounter with the Ekhat in a distant nebula reveals a powerful alien society that may hold the key to defeating the Ekhat once and for all. There’s one big problem: they utterly loathe humanity's ally, the Jao. And why shouldn’t they? It was the Jao who drove them into hiding in the first place. Once again, everything depends on those innovators and idea-generators, the humans, to quell a brewing war and forge a tripartite alliance of very different species—or be blasted to empty cinders if they don’t succeed.

1634: The Galileo Affair
1634: The Galileo Affair
The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence: the Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century led by Mike Stearns who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident. The democratic ideals of the CPE have aroused the implacable hostility of Cardinal Richelieu, effective ruler of France, who has moved behind the scenes, making common cause with old enemies to stop this new threat to the privileged and powerful. But the CPE is also working in secret. A group of West Virginians have secretly traveled to Venice where their advanced medical knowledge may prevent the recurrence of the terrible plague which recently killed a third of the city-state's population. At the same time, the group hopes to establish commercial ties with Turkey's Ottoman Empire, then at the height of its power. And, most important, they hope to establish private diplomatic ties with the Vatican, exploiting Pope Urban VIII's misgivings about the actions of Richelieu and the Hapsburgs. But a Venetian artisan involved with the West Virginians may cause all their plans to come to naught. Having read 20th century history books of the period, he has become determined to rescue Galileo from his trial for heresy. The Americans are divided on whether to help him or stop him-and whether he succeeds or fails, the results may be catastrophic for the CPE.

The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence: the Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians from the 20th century led by Mike Stearns who were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic accident. The CPE has the know-how of 20th century technology, but needs iron and steel to make the machines. The iron mines of the upper Palatinate were rendered inoperable by wartime damage, and American know-how is needed on the spot to pump them out and get the metal flowing again—a mission that will prove more complicated than anyone expects. In the maelstrom that is Europe, even a 20th century copy of the Encyclopedia Britannica can precipitate a crisis, when readers learn of the 1640 Portuguese revolt, a crisis that will involve Naples as well. Another factor: Albanian exiles in Naples, inspired by the Americans, are plotting to recover lost Albanian turf, which will precipitate yet another crisis in the Balkans. This troubled century was full of revolutions and plans for more revolutions before the Americans arrived, and gave every would-be revolutionary an example of a revolution that succeeded. Europe is a pot coming to a boil, and Mike Stearns will have his hands full seeing that it doesn't boil over on to Grantville and the CPE.

Soon Helen’s new discoveries will lead her to the mysterious asteroid Ceres and beyond in a desperate race to reach Jupiter's perilous miniature system of radiation-bombarded moons. It seems the next gold rush is on–for alien technology. And there are people willing to do anything to get it – even if they must start the Solar System’s first interplanetary war!

Slow Train To Arcturus
Slow Train To Arcturus
The planet Miran had sent a spaceship to rendezvous with the enormous vessel that was approaching their star system. The vessel’s design was odd—a multitude of separate globular habitats in a framework—and most of the alien team that entered one of the habitats were slaughtered by savage creatures called “humans.” One alien had barely managed to escape to another habitat where the humans were more friendly, if rather technologically backward. But he needed to get back to his spaceship, and he would need one human’s help to do that.

The Grantville Gazette 3 (anthology)
A mysterious cosmic force—the “Ring of Fire”—has hurled the town of Grantville from 20th century West Virginia back to 17th century Europe, and into the heart of the Thirty Years War. With their seemingly magical technology, and their radical ideas of freedom and justice, the time-lost West Virginians have allied with Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, to form the United States of Europe, changing the course of history—in ways both small and large. University students, a restless breed in all centuries, become even more rambunctious in Cambridge, England because of the personal and theological impact of the time-lost Americans. At the same time, American teenagers conquer new financial worlds when their elders are looking the other way. A Lutheran pastor schemes to gain new adherents among the Americans. A Benedictine monk finds a new calling for his order. Practitioners of 20th century medicine and its 17th century counterpart struggle to find common ground in healing the sick and injured. These and other new stories—including a new story by Eric Flint himself—return the reader to one of the most popular series in alternate history science fiction.

The West Virginians fully approve of liberating the peasants from the nobility, but they are also aware of how revolutionary movements can lead to bloodbaths. And avoiding that deadly possibility will require all of their future knowledge and all their plain old American horse-trading diplomacy. . . .

The Trouble With Humans (by Christopher Anvil)
The Trouble With Humans (by Christopher Anvil)
Humans—there’s no understanding them, and no dealing with them either. Or even their planet. Pity the poor aliens, whose shape-changing ability should let them take over the planet Earth before the humans even know they’re there—if it weren’t for all that omnipresent pollution. Or consider another set of invaders, from a planet where the weather is always mild and the changing of the seasons is hardly noticeable. They land in force and their weapons are more powerful than those of the primitive humans—but they’ve never before had to deal with below-zero temperatures, flash floods or tornados—not to mention volcanoes. Then there were the aliens who noticed how belligerent humans were, and gave them the “gift” of TV-like devices which would show anything anywhere on Earth, which was sure to lead to war. Imagine how surprised the aliens were when the humans took the gadgets apart, improved them, and started spying on everything the aliens were up to, all over the galaxy. Humans don’t make sense, they don’t fight fair, and they’re making aliens throughout interstellar space think seriously about pulling up stakes and moving to another galaxy!

RX For Chaos (by Christopher Anvil)
RX For Chaos (by Christopher Anvil)
Science and technology have made our lives easier, cured diseases, with achievements that an earlier age would have considered impossible. But once in a while, the law of unintended consequences breaks loose. Christopher Anvil considers the two faces of technological innovation: Sometimes the result is a literal life-saver; but at other times a breakthrough may not break quite the way it was supposed to. A new wonder drug has the unexpected side effect of making people happy. Not a problem—everybody should want to be happy, right? But should people be happy all of the time? Suppose being happy required you never to disappoint anyone, no matter what they’re requesting. Then there was the energy source for every home that would free the country from its dependence on foreign oil—except that the prototype was rushed into production a bit too fast. Back on the bright side, another device not only couldn’t possibly work by every known law of science, but didn’t have any obvious uses. Then alien invaders landed and suddenly the crackpot device was the world’s only hope. The upside and downside of marvelous new gadgets, as told by a master of science fiction adventure with a prescription for fun.

Eternal Frontier (by James H. Schmitz)
Eternal Frontier (by James H. Schmitz)
Earth's colonists have divided into the Swimmers, who spend their entire lives in zero-gravity and claim to be the next step in evolution, and the planet-dwelling Walkers. The Swimmers regard those who prefer to live on the surface of a planet as little better than unevolved apes, while the Walkers are not about to say farewell to the planets they grew up on, and think the Swimmers are not advanced at all, but merely deranged. Crowell, born a Swimmer but now a Walker by choice, is caught in the middle as the two sides prepare for war. Then he discovers the true cause of the altercation: a hidden alien race trying to provoke a war of extinction.

  3. Patrick Price says:

    When will 1632 hard copies be available?

  4. Chuck Harlow says:

    When will you write the sequel to 1824?

  5. michael h bernard says:

    I cannot find 1632 available in ebook. Can you tell me where to find it in ebook, or why it is not available in that format?

    • Phil Newman says:

      You could probably get it at Baen.com. Look for the free library under Home. You can download it from there. You have probably already been told this. Hope it was helpful if you have not.

  6. Kenneth. Witter says:

    I am also unable to find 1632 in book. Where can I get it?

    • Marc Prince says:

      I discovered the book (1632) and the series (not all, or even most are there) at my local Barnes and Noble a few months back, if you don’t mind paperbacks. I prefer them, myself, because I’m rough on books, paperbacks are economical for readaholics, and they fit in the cargo pockets of the work pants I usually wear so I can take them almost anywhere.

      It was a spur of the moment purchase, I was there looking for David Drake books I don’t have, and noticed the title on another shelf below. Now I’m hooked.

  7. Lucinda Hampson says:

    I have lots of those lovely ebook gazettes but I can’t find them on site. I think
    vol 34 or 36 is my last. Are there more?

  8. BRT_admin says:

    FYI, the 1632 e-books can be had through the BAEN web site, at http://www.Baen.com page. Meanwhile, the rest of the hardcopy items have been added! Take a look!

  10. margaret redmon says:

    When are you planning to publish more of the 1632 series?

  11. Michael says:

    Have you considered offering copies of these books autographed by yourself? Even if they cost more, I would treasure a copy of 1632 signed by you sir.

  12. Manny Lieberman says:

    I just got the new 1635 Papal Stakes on Audiobook, but I still cant find The Eastern Front on Audio even though it’s been out for a while.. I also preferred the first few Audiobooks in the series where the reader actually had a command of dialects and accents. When do you think the Eastern Front might be available in Audiobook form?

  13. Philip remington says:

    Where can I buy 1634 the Baltic war in audio form? I listened to 1632 and 1633 that I purchased from audio.com. I own a kindle fire

  14. Victor Lishnyansky says:

    Where can I find information about translation of Eric Flint’s books, especially the 1632 series, into other languages? If I want to translate (and publish) a book into Ukrainian what legal steps shall I take?

    • Eric Flint says:

      So far as I know, the only books of mine which have been translated into a foreign are the Belisarius novels and the Honor Harrington books I’ve done with David Weber. I strongly recommend not translating anything unless you have a publisher. It’s likely to be a lot of work for you, otherwise, and with no guarantee anything will come out of it.

  15. Marc Prince says:

    I hadn’t realized a few months ago when I discovered 1632 that Eric Flint wasn’t entirely new to me. I own Eternal Frontier, and have thoroughly enjoyed James H. Schmitz since the late ’80s. But apparently he’s a secret treasure of SF, and his books are very hard to find. The only ones I’ve been able to acquire are “EF,” “The Demon Breed,” “The Witches of Karres,” and “Agent of Vega.” It’s nice to discover I’m not the only one. I rarely buy hardback fiction, but I’m glad I looked over Flint’s bookstore. Now I’ll be on the lookout for “Sorceress of Karres,” and “Belisarius I.”

  16. Ember Grummons says:

    I am thoroughly enjoying the 1632 series on Audible – George Guidall is the perfect narrator for this series. I noticed the books are not being released in line with your recommended reading order – why not? Most listeners who take in interest in the series will do what I did – google the recommended reading order and try to follow it as far as possible with the audiobooks. Right now there are some gaps, starting with “Ring of Fire” What are the plans for future audiobook releases? Also, please keep George!

  17. Eric Flint says:

    Eventually, all the 1632 titles — the novels, at least, I’m not sure about anthologies — are supposed to come out in audio, but I don’t know when or in what order.

  18. Robert C. Gibson says:

    Eric, how do I get in touch with 1632, Inc???? When I logged into Grantville Gazette
    this morning I get only “This Account has been suspended”….why? I’ve paid my $50
    Citizen’s dues via Paypal for several years latest was invoice ID 5050-KPQ on Feb. 9,
    2014. Transaction ID 882A86974PK1376702 – Status COMPLETED. I hate to bother
    you with this but don’t know where else to go. Any help will be greatly appreciated….
    I enjoy the entire Ring of Fire series greatly….you and the gang keep up the good work.
    Robert C. Gibson (just entered my 7th decade ‘n still going strong (more or less).

  19. Marc Prince says:

    Dear Mr. Flint (strange perhaps, coming from a stranger, but I love the way you tell a story, so you’re dear to me),
    What happened to Guy Gordon? I just finished Telzey Amberdon, and went looking for his site, which is gone. I went searching for him elsewhere online and failed to find him, though I did find someone else’s recommendation that mercilessly teased me with what a great site it was for Schmitz readers. Your (and his) afterwards were very helpful to my understanding of Mr. Schmitz, and greatly appreciated. My impression from them was that Schmitz was a lot more prolific than I’d dared to hope. Those four Hub compilations you wrote of have me stoked, and it sounds like you may put out more of his stories. I’ll buy them all (and a book of short stories is always handy for a busy person).

    Are those four you wrote of, in order, “Telzey Amberdon,” (the afterward was in that one, which made me wonder) “TNT,” “Trigger and Friends,” and “The Hub: Dangerous Territory?” “Dangerous territory,” looks like it may contain “The Demon Breed,” which I haven’t been able to find another copy of since I was given a hardback in ’89. If it is, thank you very much for that.

    I’m going to order the other three from Baen, I’ve got to have the cargo pocket sized paperbacks. There’s also an “Original Edition of edited Schmitz Stories,” that I don’t have in Ebook. I hope it makes it to paperback.

    There aren’t many Authors that tell a story well enough that I have to start rereading it as soon as I finish it, but Schmitz did, and so did you with 1632. Both, coincidentally, at 2am when I had to be up by 6. It’s really great that you’re doing so much to expose people to such an excellent and hard to find author.

    • Eric Flint says:

      I haven’t had any contact with Guy Gordon in many years now. We worked together closely on the Schmitz reissue, and then on a reissue of Howard L. Myers. We also began a reissue of Murray Leinster but that got cut short because of problems with the estate. After that we went our separate ways. As I recall — but it’s now been almost a decade — I ran across him a year or so after the last books in our various reissues came out (which was in 2004) at an SF convention. I haven’t seen or spoken to him since.

      THE DEMON BREED is indeed contained in “The Hub: Dangerous Territory.” There were a total of seven volumes in the Schmitz reissue, which put all of his works back in print (and for the first time ever). In addition, Dave Freer and Misty Lackey and I have written two sequels to THE WITCHES OF KARRES (they’re titled THE WIZARD OF KARRES and THE SORCERESS OF KARRES) and Dave and I will be published another volume in the future. (And maybe more after that. It depends on sales.)
