1632

Flint, Eric
A town in West Virginia from the year 2000 in transported back in time to Germany, 1631, during the Thirty Years War. Not a good time to be in Germany, from all accounts. Good story, moves right along, and I'm learning a lot of history. Hope it is accurate!

1635: The Dreeson Incident

Flint, Eric
Co-authored by Virginia DeMarce. Thanks goodness for the eight pages listing the characters, and the page of family trees, and the maps. But I still got confused.

Words I Had To Look Up:

Propinquity (pg. 97) -- Nearness in place or time.
...balancing with sidecars (pg. 155) -- I thought sticking someone in the sidecar would stabilize it.
catechumens (pg. 369) -- One who is being taught the principles of Christianity.

Grantville Gazette IV

Flint, Eric
Fiction and factual articles related to the 1632 world, by Eric Flint and others. My favorite was the train-related Elizabeth. The factual articles were interesting, but went into WAY too much detail for me!

Grantville Gazette Volume I

Flint, Eric
Five stories, three factual articles, and one racy cover, which goes along with the first story. My favorite story was "Anna's Story".

Quote:

CB radios operate at 21 MHz (11 meters) --(pg. 307) No, 21 MHz is the 15 meter band. CB is around 27 MHz.

Ring of Fire II

Flint, Eric
Fifteen stories by various authors, edited by Flint. My favorite was Ellis Island, by Russ Rittgers, but all the stories were good.

Time Spike

Flint, Eric
Co-written with Marilyn Kosmatka. An Illinois maximum security prison is transported 50 million years back in time,more or less, along with Cherokee Indians from the Trail of Tears, Spanish conquistadors, and various other people. And dinosaurs. Yikes!

Smoke Quote:

No matter how different they were in other ways, they shared the smoker's sense of withstanding a bitter and relentless siege shoulder to shoulder. -- pg. 419.
