4.0 out of 5 stars Strong collection of short stories expanding the series, 3 Mar 2004

(REAL NAME)   
On the Baen Bar, Eric Flint placed out a call for writers to add pieces to the growing tapestry of the 1632 series. The stories selected here are all representative of this. Although nearly all the stories have a setting pre-1633 (save Flint's own novella), they definitely have a strong influence on the rest of the upcoming series. As a fan of the first two books, nothing in this collection disappoints, irregardless of whether the writer is an established author or a first-timer. Although a couple of the stories don't move forward much other than rounding out the characters and I found a few not to my taste, there is enough variety that any fan of alternate history or science fiction will have a good read. However, all the stories in this book assume the reader has read 1632, so it is a must that it be read before this one. Enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan Fiction carrying the story forward, 26 May 2007
By 
Jim Rowe (Co Meath, Ireland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ring Of Fire (Assiti Shards) (Mass Market Paperback)
Eric Flint's passion for collaboration, and his willingness to let other people play in his backyard has produced a captivating anthology. I actually read Ring of Fire first of all of the 1632 novels, and it was this that led me to buy and read all of the rest; a happy circumstance for which I am now very grateful. It's intriguing on its own, but together with the rest of Eric Flint's wonderful 1632 world, clear proof that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
