Eric Flint (creator & editor) – Ring of Fire II anthology of stories set in the Ring of Fire/1632 background…

Mark GestonThe Book of Wars omnibus edition of Lords of the Starship, Out of the Mouth of the Dragon & The Siege of Wonder. Excellent stuff; the first 2 are a pair featuring efforts to build a gigantic starship.  Two of my favourite books from the early 70s… the 3rd title is linked to them thematically at best, though.  But it’s great to see this under-appreciated author back in print. 🙂 Also interesting introductions from both Geston and David Drake
