Forthcoming

(last updated on 6 Feb 2017)

RECENTLY PUBLISHED:

September, 2016: The Span of Empire, with David Carrico. This is the sequel to the two Jao Empire novels I wrote with Kathy Wentworth before she died, The Course of Empire and The Crucible of Empire.

October 2016: Castaway Odyssey, with Ryk Spoor. This is set in the same universe as the Boundary trilogy but is not a direct sequel. The novel takes place about two centuries after the events related in Boundary, Threshold and Portal. It’s basically an SF retelling of the Swiss Family Robinson story.

April 2015: Grantville Gazette VII. I’ve got two stories in this anthology. The first, as I always do with these anthologies, explains the cover illustration. The second one… How to describe it? Let’s just say that Walter Hunt and I dropped a stitch in our novel coming out in July (see next entry below) and this short story solves the problem.

January 2017: 1636: The Ottoman Onslaught. This is my next solo novel in the 1632 series, which will be the direct sequel to both 1636: The Saxon Uprising as well as my short novel in Ring of Fire III, “Four Days on the Danube

SCHEDULED FOR PUBLICATION — firmly scheduled with dates from Baen Books:

April 2017: 1636: The Mughal Mission, with Griffin Barber. This novel centers on Mughal India.

May 2017: The Gods of Sagittarius, with Mike Resnick. This is a space opera. Think of it as Interstellar Indiana Jones and the Alien Investigator/Terminator and you’ll be… well, pretty wildly off but still somewhere in the galactic vicinity

July 2017: The Alexander Inheritance, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This novel begins a new Assiti Shard story line which, like Time Spike, is connected to the 1632 series but not part of it. In this story line, an Assiti Shard transposes a modern cruise liner into the Mediterranean just after the death of Alexander the Great.

September, 2017: Iron Angels, with Alistair Kimble. This novel is a cross between urban fantasy and a police procedural. My co-author is an FBI agent.

December 2017: 1636: The Vatican Sanction, with Charles Gannon. This novel is the sequel to 1635: The Papal Stakes.

DONE BUT NOT YET SCHEDULED:

1637: The Volga Rules, with Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff. This is the sequel to 1636: The Kremlin Games.

1636: The Mandate of Heaven, with Iver Cooper. This novel centers on China in the last days of the Ming dynasty.

ALSO UNDERWAY — manuscripts being written but not yet scheduled for publication:

1636: The Atlantic Encounter, with Walter Hunt. (Formerly known as 1636: Drums Along the Mohawk.) The first draft of this novel is finished. I decided to hold it back, however, partly because it needs some more work and would fit better in the chronology if it was published later.

Castaway Peril, with Ryk Spoor. This novel is the direct sequel to Castaway Odyssey.

All the Plagues of Hell. Dave Freer has finished the first draft of the next volume in the Heirs of Alexandria series, which began with Shadow of the Lion and continued on with A Mankind Witch (by Dave Freer alone), This Rough Magic, Much Fall of Blood and the recently published Burdens of the Dead. This book is set in Italy and continues the story of Benito, Maria, Marco and Kat. I’m now working on the final draft.

Dave and I are doing this volume without Mercedes Lackey. It will be followed by a volume written by Misty and me without Dave. The working title of that novel is The Great Doom’s Image and it will follow the story of Prince Manfred, Erik and Bortai.

Council of Fire, with Walter Hunt. This novel is set in a fantasy/alternate history North America in the mid-18th century. The passage of Halley’s comet in 1759 triggers a catastrophe that sunders the New World from the Old World, and unleashes magic in the New World.

    Holy Smokes! “The Ottoman Onslaught” ended in a gigantic cliffhanger is no understatement! What book am I WAITING for now? BTW, Thanks for all the wonderful stories!!!! I surely do enjoy visiting with my “friends” from Grantville, being from West Virginia myself I feel like I really “know” these people.

  2. Louis Hamerman says:

    Just finished the Ottoman Onslaught. Now what????

  3. Mitchell Stewart says:

    Always appreciative of the quantity and quality of your work with special thanks to your hyper-active Muse. I was especially heartened to see more “Alexandria” books forthcoming; I had sadly concluded the series had ended. So, I look forward then to more of the 1632 series and now also to “Alexandria”. Yay. Now if David Weber will be forthcoming with more of Honor and of

  4. David Hutcheson says:

    Is anything more planned for the Rivers of War series? I enjoy 1632 but really love the 1812 cast and characters.

  5. Bill Scott says:

    More great reads!! Thanks Eric.

  6. Chris Rudd says:

    I just reread the 1812/1824 Arkansas books for the 1000th time. Any chance for a sequel looking at the rest of the U.S.-Arkansas war? Maybe the next generation? Love your 1632 series too!

    I went to a supposedly good restaurant, listened to a lot of chatter, and was served half a meal, and told to come back in a month. Reminds me of the Ottoman onslaught.

    Very interested in seeing where the Cromwell/Wentworth/Mackay family story lines take us. Any glimmers on the horizon there?

      I think all of your books are really great.
      I am having trouble finding some of the books of the Ring of Fire Series.
      The numbers are not all there. Is there anyway to obtain a complete list of all the books in numerical order regardless of the author?

  11. John Dziki says:

    Just finished Alexander Inheritance. Liked it a lot but, wish it was much much longer. Another 50 pages or more about the passengers on the ship and how they handled the shift. But I guess that what the Grantville Gazette is for.

  12. Sam says:

    Can you provide an update on the future 1632 release schedule, been 6 months since the last update. Thanks

  13. Tom Kalbfus says:

    I read The Alexander Inheritance, it was a good book. I imagine the issue of slavery is going to be big in the next book of this series. Unlike the Antebellum South, some of the slaves in this classic period can read, I think there is likely to be a slave revolt and the Ship People will be forced to take sides. Also has Ptolemy really given up on independence for his Egypt, and should the people on the Queen of the Seas care about it or not? I mean, its not a development that Roxanne would welcome, but for the others in the ship. To preserve the Empire or not? Does it matter? Also what about New America? Does it expand, does it grow, does it become a haven for escaped slaves. I will note that the population of the Earth at this time is around 100 million, this is not a lot of people. There is a lot of wilderness area in Europe. I expect with the introduction of new technology for the population growth rate to take off The Egyptians and others will probably want hard copies of whatever is on the computers before they wear out I think that by the year 0 ACE, their technology will have caught up with our own. Maybe by 221 BCE, much depends on how quickly the new knowledge spreads to the whole planet.

    Excited to see cover art up for 1637: The Volga Rules on Amazon, so looks like the wait for that one is almost over (and maybe Amazon’s release date is real this time)! I didn’t really expect to see that until we’d gotten the main series timeline up to 1637, but I suppose Russia is far enough from the action that what happens there isn’t necessarily going to matter to the main storyline (and that the main story events might not impact Russia directly given how the PLC acts as a massive buffer state between Europe and Russia). Can’t wait for more! Thanks for the stories! And (since everyone else asks questions) is Chuck Gannon working on a sequel to Commodore Cantrell in the West Indies? Thanks, again!

    It’s time to update Forthcoming.

  16. band says:

    That іs really interesting, You are an overly professional blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed ɑnd stay up for in quest of extra of your excellent ρost.
    Additіonally, I’ve shareԀ your web site in my social networks

  17. Don says:

    Having a page in your website labeled “forthcoming” is outstanding. Updating it about once a year is absurd. It is totally useless to your fans for about half that time. Probably takes you an hour or two to update on the rare occasions that you do so. If you updated this page about once a month it would be quick to do and would remain relevant to your readers, inducing more visits to your website.

  18. Karl Blessing says:

    I want to reply to Don, yes it is infrequently updated, however you may have not been aware of Eric’s recent bout with cancer, I think his time is best spent on recovery. Just saying.

    • Thane says:

      That’s terrible to hear! I hope he makes a full recovery!

    • Don says:

      I did not know that, thank you for the info. Eric, wishing you a full recovery and the best of health.

    • Bret Hooper says:

      I have long admired Eric, and wished I could be more like him in some ways, but now I have reason to, and strongly do, wish that Eric has, or will, become more like me in one way: on 24-June-2009 I became actually, and five years later officially, a cancer survivor. There are few things that would please me more than to learn that Eric has (or will within five years) become one too!

      P.S. Drak: I believe the majority of us who visit this website would appreciate a new page with at least a monthly update on how Eric is doing, and on which we could leave messages of encouragement.

  19. Please wish Eric a speedy recovery from whatever kind of cancer he has been dealing with! (cancers ARE survivable, especially with what we keep learning about them) And my admiration and thanks for a large number of stories with interesting and complex characters, which are all on my bookshelf!

  20. Bob Patterson says:

    I’m sorry about the evil thoughts I had about how long I had to wait from finishing one book until the next came out. Take care of yourself and I will wait as long as it takes to find out what Mike, Becky, and all are up to next.

  21. Herbert Sakalaucks says:

    Walt Boyes just confirmed today that 1635 The Battle for Newfoundland is planned for release by Ring of Fire Press next month! Stay tuned for upcoming snippets and the cover art.
