New York Times best-seller, master-class alternate historian, and creator of the "Ring of Fire" saga Eric Flint delivers an explosion of tales filled with well-turned action, wit and wonder. First: a heart-wrenching saga of love, guts and daring as a husband and wife, forced into an arranged marriage, fall in love for the first time while fighting their way toward one another in the midst of an alternate Roman war. Flint follows with stories set in David Weber's legendary "Honorverse" and Flint's own "1632" series. It's all topped with the gem of a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery novella (and Writer's of the Future grand prize winner) that first announced Eric Flint's arrival on the SF scene like a cannon-shot a dawn!
The plan: wipe out and enslave those weed-eating, monkey-spawn humans and march on toward galactic domination! Easy, right Not quite. Now the smarter Kzin see the writing on the wall and form alliances of convenience with humans. But the battle rage on! A strange OLD world seemingly settled by pre-Romans is about to have the honor of Kzin enslavement—unless a human and mercenary-Kzin team can stop it. A human secret agent with wiped memories must evade a Kzin assassin until he can rediscover his mission and save himself. And a Kzin horde is racing toward a huge anti-matter cache in deep space as one reluctant human protector stands against this ultimate threat!
A hard-hitting, spellbinding addition to the 'Man-Kzin Wars' shared universe created by multiple New York Times best-seller, incomparable tale-spinner, and Nebula- and five-time Hugo-Award-winner, Larry Niven!
"[The Man-Kzin Wars series is] excellent . . .gripping . . .and expands well on Larry Niven's universe . . . ." —Locus
Hard-SF master and renownedJohn W. Campbell Analog regular Christopher Anvil astounds with mind-bending ideas and their often deadly (and darkly humorous) consequences. Morton Hommel, erstwhile Director of Banner Drug and Vitamin Laboratories, applies the science of pharmacology and the art of sweet reason to a world on the verge of a technological nervous breakdown. These "Hommels" are Anvil at his speculative best— all edited by modern-day SF master, Eric Flint!
Jack Vance. Gene Wolfe. Cordwainer Smith. If you like your SF evocative and full of amazingly bizarre ideas that recall the best of such writers, you're gonna love Mark Geston!

Now humans finally grasp the secrets of thaumaturgy and are ready to turn it against their foes! Finally, a young prophet faces down a super-science Armageddon in a weirdly-baroque far future. Three Geston novels of startling imagination and strangeness, together for the first time!

Evil Alien Butt Blasted to Smithereens!
Gateway HD 36951 lies in ruins. All survivors slaughtered. A single, truncated message sent back to Earth. Something very bad indeed is afoot, and the A.S.S. Vorpal Blade (read: nuclear submarine converted to warp-drive space ship) is sent to investigate. But the ferocious, voracious enemy Dreen wait for no man (or other carbon-based lifeform), and the Blade and her crew are soon the only hope for an alien species pushed to the brink of extinction. Turn back and abandon a new ally or face a heavily-armed Dreen destroyer head on
For the Blade's rough-and-ready crew, it's no contest. And now, with an infusion of technical know-how from humanity's new ally, chaos itself has become a weapon!

Publisher's Note: From the Sea to the Stars was originally published in parts as Sea Siege and Star Gate. This is the first time both novels have appeared together.
Sea Siege: The nuclear war had come at last and the research team on an island in the West Indies thought they had been lucky to survive. But survival was going to require more than luck, when they found themselves under attack by sea creatures out of darkest legend, directed by a malevolent intelligence from the depths of the sea.
Star Gate: Long ago, the Star Lords had come from a dying Earth to Gorth, where they helped the inhabitants build a civilization. Now some of the Lords have resumed wandering among the stars, but others have decided to travel through an interdimensional gate to another Gorth in a parallel universe. And when they find that in this universe the Star Lords from Earth conquered and enslaved the people of Gorth, their course is clear. They must battle their counterparts to free Gorth--even if it means their own destruction.
