Prior to becoming an author, Flint worked as a labor organizer and political activist, earning something of a reputation as a leftist radical. To this day he is a member of the Socialist Workers Party, one of the largest far-left parties in the United States (relatively speaking). To a casual reader this is generally not apparent--most notable is that his books generally have heroes with strong blue-collar values--but a reader schooled in Marxist theory or socialist history can pick up plenty of references.

* ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'', the most successful and well known of the Assati Shards concept; in 2000 AD, a West Virginia coal mining town is dropped into Germany, in the year 1632. In the middle of one of [[UsefulNotes/TheThirtyYearsWar the worst wars of the past millennium]]. Some hilarity ensues, along with a whacking great dose of {{character development}} for pretty much everyone, romance, heroics, and death. Oh, and the American Revolution -- a century or so ahead of schedule.

To this day he is a member of the Socialist Workers Party, one of the largest far-left parties in the United States (relatively speaking). Perhaps surprisingly, this rarely, if ever, shows in his work (which is probably why a publisher that has a tendency to pick up incredibly right-wing authors is willing to publish his work).
