Bartley’s Man originally appeared in several issues of The Grantville Gazette. Autho s Paula Goodlett and Gorg Huff have prepared this expanded edition expressly for Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press. It joins the library of existing books in this series. Much of this book is new for this edition.
Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press is publishing many stories expanded from the ones published in the Gazette. Like Bartley’s Man, they will be expanded versions of the originally published stories. We will also be publishing Time Spike stories, 1632 fact volumes, as well as novels and novellas from established authors that aren’t part of the 1632 universe. We will be publishing science fiction, fantasy, and even non-1632 alternate history.
We expect to have six to eight new volume in print (both e- and paper) by the end of this year. We hope to have between ten and twelve new volumes every year.
Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press is being done in consultation and the agreement of Baen Books. As before, Baen will continue to publish the paper editions of the Ring of Fire series, as well as the ebook formats of those volumes.
Our publishing model is “digital first” but you can also purchase trade paper editions of these books from Amazon and other retailers.
