The final instalment of the Belisarius series by Flint/Drake has just been releaseed an unproofed e-ARC by Baen Books.

I'm sure there were typos everywhere but to be honest I didn't notice any. Partly because I wasn't looking, but mostly because the story was well enough written that the readers trance carried me past them.

The general shape of the ending has been clear since the fourth book in the series ("Fortune's Stroke") and will come as no surprise to those who have been paying attention to their grammar.

The details are quite another matter. To a large extent The Dance of Time is about resolving all of the minor plotlines that have been hanging around for several books and does so brilliantly.

But it is a novel about war and so the triumph is tempered by tragedy.

About which I will say nothing more or certain nameless administrators will want to thump me.

A fitting conclusion to the saga that began with An Oblique Approach, and I'll be looking forward to the hard cover next year.

If you cannot see the causal relationship between "I have chocolate" and "Life is Good", you simply aren't trying hard enough.

Said hard cover is now in my hands and stands up well to re-reading.

But then Eric Flint is always easy to re-read.

[Aside: The sequel to The Rivers Of War is due soon. Yay!]
