Cover Breakdown: Ring of Fire IV by Eric Flint

It's Tuesday, which means it's time for another cover breakdown! Today we present an analysis of the cover for Eric Flint's Ring of Fire IV, set to hit shelves May 3, 2016. Penned as the sequels to Flint's 1632, which earned a 4.5 star review from us, the sci-fi anthology promises plenty of excitement with short stories from renowned authors including Mercedes Lackey, David Brin and Eric Flint himself. Be prepared for a wild ride as a cosmic accident causes the past to collide with the present. To the blurb!

A cosmic accident sets the modern West Virginia town of Grantville down in war-torn seventeenth century Europe. It will take all the gumption of the resourceful, freedom-loving up-timers to find a way to flourish in a mad and bloody time. Are they up for it? You bet they are.
