(last updated on 27 January 2019)

June 2018: Grantville Gazette VIII.

August 2018: Worlds 2. This is the second collection of my short fiction.

December 2018: All the Plagues of Hell, with Dave Freer. This is 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. Prince Manfred, Erik Hakkonsen and Princess Bortai also appear toward the end of the novel.

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

April 2019: 1637: The Polish Maelstrom. This is a working title and will not be the title under which the novel is actually published. It’s the direct sequel to 1636: The Ottoman Onslaught and was formerly titled 1636: The Anaconda Project. It is tentatively scheduled for publication sometime in the spring of 2019.

September 2019: 1636: The China Venture, with Iver Cooper. This novel centers on China in the last days of the Ming dynasty.

November 2019: The Sundering, 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.


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

The Macedonian Hazard, with Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett. This is the sequel to The Alexander Inheritance.

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.

1637: No Peace Beyond the Line, with Charles E. Gannon. This is the sequel to 1636: Commander Cantrell in the West Indies.

A Desperate and Despicable Dwarf. This is part of the Joe’s World series, and is the sequel to both Forward the Mage and The Philosophical Strangler. The manuscript is about two-thirds finished.

Tangle of Tales (working title; the final title will be different—stay tuned). This is the fourth novel I’ve co-authored with David Weber in his Honor Harrington universe. It is the sequel to Cauldron of Ghosts.

    Thank you for the update.

    Thank you, I have been waiting for the sequel to commander cantrell.

  3. Greg Stille says:

    Glad to hear that Commander Cantrell hasn’t been ignored. Also the Polish and Chinese ventures should go a long way towards filling my needs for alternate universe stories!

  4. Zachary Kaplan says:

    Hello. First off, I’d just like to say that I’m a huge fan. Anyway, I was wondering if you’re planning to make audio recordings of the Ring of Fire anthologies and post them on Audible. And perhaps Time Spike, as well?

    As a former cruise ship environmental officer feel free to pick my brain on the technical aspects for the Macedonian hazard

  6. Simon Lyon says:

    2/3’s finished! That’s awesome, I look forward to seeing just how dark and despicable Shelid ends up being.

    “The Macedonian Hazard, with Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett. This is the sequel to The Alexander Inheritance.”

    I’m rereading “The Alexander Inheritance” and i’m wondering when a date will be set because I really, REALLY want to read the sequel.

    Also i’m wondering if and when there’s going to be a sequel to Herb Sakalauck’s “The Danish Scheme” because there some aspects that haven’t been wrapped up (Like the two Dutch Raiders)?

    • cka2nd says:

      Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press has already published “The Battle for Newfoundland,” the sequel to Herb’s “The Danish Scheme.”

  8. Shang says:

    I need that sequel to Alexander Inheritance NOW!

  9. Daniel says:

    Just saw on Amazon/Goodreads that David Carrico is releasing an omnibus volume of a pair of novellas in November (has a cover) 1636: Flight of the Nightingale.

  10. Sam says:

    Anything at all for another Course of Empire book?

    • Eric says:

      At the moment, no. That could change in the future, however. I just don’t know yet. If anything develops, I’ll post it on my Facebook page.
