Eric Flint is an American novelist, short story author, editor, and e-publisher who deals primarily with science fiction, fantasy, and alternate history. He was born in South California in 1947. Growing up he lived for five years in France and he later graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s degree. He worked toward a Ph D in History, but left academia in 1971. After this, he took various jobs, with the main one being a machinist. Eric also spent his years during that time as a political activist and was a member of the Socialist Workers Party.

The short story that broke him onto the writing scene was entitled, "Entropy, and the Strangler" , which was published in 1993 after it won the Winter 1992 Writer’s of the Future Contest. His 1st novel to be published was "Mother of Demons" in 1993. Eric has worked closely with Richard Poach, David Drake, Dave Freer, and Mercedes Lackey on some of his works. In addition to writing, Eric Flint is also an editor and is involved in a project called Read Assist (electronic publishing).
