IN THE MAIL: The latest installment of the Eric Flint alt-history series that began with 1632. Flint, interestingly, is a Trotskyite former labor organizer (or maybe he’s a former Trotskyite labor organizer, I’m not sure) but his writing is more authentically pro-American than most of what you’ll find.

UPDATE: A reminder that 1632, and its sequel, 1633, are available — along with numerous other books from Eric Flint’s backlist — in the Baen Free Library. More on that, and how giving books away on the Web has made money for Baen Books, here.
