And here we are again, with another issue of the Grantville Gazette! Lots of interesting goings-on in 1632/3/4/5 Europe to tell about this issue.
Once Maria Anna and Don Fernando decided to get hitched, it doesn't seem likely that Maria Anna would be content to be a typical queen. And sure enough, she isn't. Girl's got plans. Read about a few of them in Kim Mackey's "Game, Set and Match."
What would happen to the Methodists if the religion's founder showed up? Well, he probably won't, but what about his grandpa? What'll Mary Ellen Jones do? Check out "Loose Canon" by a new writer, Kirt Lee.
The dumpling carts were doing well, but then summer came . . . Read what happened in Terry Howard's "Don't Cry Over Frozen Milk." And crime in Magdeburg just won't stop, so read the mystery in David Carrico's "Rachel's Plaint."
Way up north, in the frozen hill, there's this waterfall . . . See what happens with it in Kerryn Offord's "Silencing the Sirens' Song." More doings over in England, check out "Homecoming" by Karen Bergstralh. And for trips to the new world, there's Herbert and William Sakalauck's "Northwest Passage, Part Two," as well as more about the evangelicals in Part Five of Wood Hughes' "Turn Your Radio On."
Nonfiction concentrates on energy and metals with articles from Jeff Corwith and Iver P. Cooper, "The Oil Mines at Wietze and Pechelbronn" and "Mineral Mastery: Discovery and Control of Ore Deposits After the Baltic War."
It's again full of info, with lots of speculation and loads of entertainment, Volume 23 of the Grantville Gazette!
Oh my, oh, my. What's up in the wonderful world of Grantville these days?
Sabotage at the power plant! Noooooo! We need that power plant. Read what happened in Doug Jones' "Power Play." Mail order bride? Yep. We've got those, sort of. Check out Kerryn Offord's "A Job Well Done."
Secret societies? We can do that. Read Kirt Lee's "Venus and Mercury" for a taste. And it's really not a good idea to tick off a librarian type, indeed it isn't. See what happens in Iver P. Cooper's "The Dewey System."
Not every indolent noble is all that happy with being indolent. Or even noble. Check out Jose J. Clavell's "The Duchess is a Leatherneck" for one example.
And the finale of Wood Hughes' serial "Turn Your Radio On, Episode Six" is right here in Grantville Gazette Volume 24. You can't miss it!
Industrial Alchemy? Read what that is. As well as how to find your way in another plane. Iver P. Cooper and Kevin H. Evans provide our nonfiction for this volume.
Things just keep getting more and more interesting in Grantville and environs. Shakespeare's grandsons have popped back up, with the very latest in musical entertainment. Read Virginia DeMarce's "Franconia! Parts 2 and 3" for details.
Finland? Who's in Finland? For that answer, see "The Mill on theRiver Kymi" by Terry Howard and Mic Sjostrom. For happenings in England and India, try Mark Huston's "The Man in the Pocket," which uses historical characters and Iver P. Cooper's "Gajam Raanni."
Back in Grantville itself, try Kerryn Offords "A Change of Hart," where the rather infamous Hart brothers make good. For a change. Meanwhile, life in the merchant navy proceeds apace. Read about it in "A Nerd at Sea" by Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett.
Interested in railroads? "If I Had a Hammer" by Kevin and Karen Evans should satisfy.
Nonfiction this issue deals with chemistry and rail, with Iver P. Cooper's "Industrial Alchemy, Part 2: Inorganic Chemical Bestiary" and Kevin Evans' "Binding the Land With Steel."
Jump in! Enjoy! Grantville Gazette, Volume 25 is ready!
