The Ring of Fire anthologies often have shorter pieces that set up the novel length stories. They also may weave the various threads together. You should not miss reading these as well as the novels.
A plug for Amazon - I wouldn't be reading all of these if it weren't for the Kindle software on my various devices. I can read in places that aren't very well lit. I guess that is a negative too - I might be staying up later because of that.
My only gripe is that eventually the lawnmower engines that are used for power will wear out and so far there is NO replacement for them on the horizon.
Hmmm... An efficient boiler could provide both hot air for the envelope and power for the propellers. Steampunks in 1636? Could be, could be.
Whilst each individual story was good, the book as a whole left me ... bored. I would have liked to have seen more of the airships storyline, as well as the spreading impact of the ROF as in the story set in Asia. The musical stories from the early years of the series were good, but only one made it into this anthology.
Some thought needs to go into re-invigorating this series, bringing back to edge it first had ten years ago.
