Exclusive Interview: “1637: The Transylvanian Decision” Co-Author Robert E. Waters


For more than 22 years, author Eric Flint wrote or co-wrote dozens of books in his Ring Of Fire series of alternate history novels, while also asking other writers to do the same. It is regarded as one of the best alternate history sagas in science fiction. But while Flint sadly passed away this past summer, the Ring Of Fire story isn’t done just yet. Co-written by Robert E. Waters, 1637: The Transylvanian Decision (hardcover, Kindle) picks up where Flint’s 2020 novel 1637: The Polish Maelstrom left off. In the following email interview, Waters discusses both his contributions to Decision, as well as how he feels about his late collaborator, both personally and professionally.
