Publisher's Summary

Something new is brewing in the 17th century! Fans of the 1632 series have often asked “What's going on in North America?” Herbert Sakalauks has set out to let you know in his short novel The Danish Scheme. Christian IV, King of Denmark, Sir Thomas Roe, the English Ambassador to Christian's court, and various elements of the extended Nasi/Abrabanel family have arranged an unusually well-funded and well led expedition to North America. In addition to a new version of this story, which had previously been published in the Grantville Gazette, Eric Flint has added a short story which provides a view of the same events from Magdeburg. What does the Stearns administration make of all this?

    I'm a telecom engineer and an attorney. My work takes me into scientific realms that spark my interest in hard and speculative SF.

    Story
    "An Interesting Side Note to the Ring"
    Would you try another book from Herbert Sakalaucks and Eric Flint and/or Bill Brooks?

    I'm a solid fan of the Ringsphere, yet this was just a side trip off of the circle that I could have easily lived without.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was okay, but not a surprise


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bill Brooks’s performances?

    Absolutely not. Mr. Brook's performance was dreadful...simply dreadful. As a speaking performance, I would have preferred to read the book rather than to listen to his performance.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope. The main portion of Ringsphere, of course, but not this stub off of the Ring.

    Mainly a fantasy reader, but switching more to Historical Fiction and History in general.

    Story
    "Pass this one Up"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was not great, and no great addition to the ring of fire series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Herbert Sakalaucks and Eric Flint before, how does this one compare?

    Not well.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The Narrator should be fired. His voices are terrible.
