Grantville Gazette 98 is about the call of the new. In Sarah Hays' "One Woman's Treasures," Alyse Ballentine brings rodeo to the new timeline. The leaders of Rothenburg in Chuck Thompson's "Two Drinks For Rothenburg" are extremely wary about Grantville and the changes it brings. On the other hand, a samurai reaches for the opportunity in "Genzaburo's Gamble" by Sean Little. Others, like Brother Brenn in "Up-Timers Must Burn!" by Joy Ward, are adamantly opposed to the new.
