It’s been five years since a cosmic incident known as The Ring of Fire transported the modern-day town of Grantville, West Virginia, through time and space to 17th-century Europe. The course of world history has been forever altered. And Mother Russia is no exception.
Czar Mikhail has escaped house arrest with the aid of up-time car mechanic Bernie Zeppi, his Russian associates—and a zeppelin. They head to the village of Ufa, where the czar plans to set up a government-in-exile. The path is dangerous, but if they are successful, a new wind of liberty will blow three centuries early—and change Mother Russia forever.

Paula Goodlett retired from the military as a noncommissioned officer in the early nineties. She broke her leg in 2003, which led to her browsing Baen's Bar lest she become bored during her enforced inactivity. Captivated by the 1632 universe concept, she began as a special assistant to Eric Flint. She eventually wrote a large important sequence of the storyline in 1634: The Ram Rebellion. She was editor of the Grantville Gazette and chairs the 1632 Editorial Board. Additionally, Paula was assistant editor of the e-zine Jim Baen's Universe. Paula mainly writes in tandem with Gorg Huff.
