* ''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/ThirtyYearsWar 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.

If not the creator of the Assiti Shards time travel idea (also known as ISOT events, after the ''Literature/IslandInTheSeaOfTime''), then the writer of the best example. Assiti being an anagram of As It Is, and the idea is simple: a location is picked up whole and dropped in another time, with only the resources they would have on hand--As It Is--to survive.

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. This usually confuses people who consider Baen, where he holds several important editorial positions, to be a conservative publishing house.
