Various writers–Steve Stirling, Eric Flint, and Tony Daniel–developed the novels from Dave’s outlines.
The General series began with The Forge in 1991 and has now reached ten volumes. Using the life of the Byzantine general Belisarius as my matrix, I plotted a series of (originally) four books set in a world which has recovered to roughly the technological level of the 19th century after the galactic civilization collapsed.
Because the series (developed from my plots by Steve Stirling) was so successful, I did additional plots and the original books were kept in print.
