And off we go again, in another volume (Number 32) of the Grantville Gazette!
Gorg Huff gives us "All Steamed Up." Did you ever wonder what was going on with the children of an up-timer/down-timer marriage? Here's what's happening with some of them.
Bjorn Hasseler has written the story of just what might happen when folks start trying to reconstruct the original text of the Bible. Check out "Bibelgesellschaft."
Things, many things, were a bit different in the 1630s. Marriage, for one. So take a look at Kerryn Offord's latest offering, "A Marriage of Inconvenience." A guy has to make mastercraftsman somehow, doesn't he?
Nicholas Keyser saw something in a story published a few issues back, and it nagged at him a bit. "Requiem in Blue" is his resolution.
Terry Howard offers "The Baptist Basement Bar and Grill." Yes, that's what I said. Have a look.
We're starting a new serial this issue. Garrett Vance, our art director, is an author to conjure with as well. Take a look at "Second Chance Bird, Episode One."
Nonfiction this issue comes from Iver P. Cooper and Gorg Huff. Iver discusses the "Treasures of the Earth: Geophysical and Geochemical Prospecting," while Gorg presents a treatise on economics called "Point Source." Interesting stuff!
Kristine Kathryn Rusch writes about one of our favorite topics—stories, stories, stories. Have a look at "The Importance of Stories."
Yep. Once again, the Grantville Gazette is up and running!
John Zeek is back with "King of the Road," but it's nothing like the Roger Miller tune of years ago. James Copley gives us "Transit," a love story, 1632 style.
Kerryn Offord offers "Black Gold," and yes, it's the black gold that runs the world, oil. Terry Howard is still having trouble with those Anabaptists . . . or are the Anabaptists having trouble with Grantville? Check out "Fire and Brimstone."
Garrett W. Vance is back with Episode Two of "Second Chance Bird," and the folks who are hunting those darn dodos. Herb Sakalaucks has lots of people headed to the new world in "Northwest Passage, Part Seven."
Nonfiction this issue has Iver P. Cooper's "Renaissance Boogie: Dancing in Early Modern Europe." Boy, it was a lot more important than the average guy would expect. Kerryn Offord is back with "A Visit to Wietze," which is, oddly enough, about a visit to the Wietze oil fields.
Patty Jansen is our Universe Annex author, with "His Name in Lights." And we've got Bud Webster and Kristine Kathryn Rusch writing columns for us, a real treat.
Lots of stuff going on in Grantville Gazette 34, indeed. Just how did seventeenth century Germany decide to elect a female vice president, hm? Check out "Warm Spit" by Virginia DeMarce.
Lots of buzz... oh, wait. That's the bees. See "Portrait of Bees in Spring" by Bradley H. Sinor and Tracy S. Morris. But there really is buzz in Suhl. See "Going Home," by John Zeek. And everyone loves a hero, even if it was more-or-less by accident, don't they? Take a look at "The Dragon Slayer" by Kerryn Offord.
Sarah Hays is a new author for us. She teamed up with our Terry Howard to produce "Orlando Delivers." Check it out. They're busy in the new world, too. Read "Northwest Passage, Part 8" by Herbert Sakalaucks.
And they're off to save the dodo, if only they can actually find one . . . For that, try Garrett W. Vance's "Second Chance Bird, Episode Three."
Nonfiction is about trains and training. Take a look at Iver P. Cooper's "Locomotion: The Next Generation" and Gus Kritikos' "The Progression of Trauma Care and Surgery after the Ring of Fire, Part One.
Universe Annex is offering a fantasy this issue, "How to Catch a Falling Star" by Stuart D. Gibbon. And you can't miss Kristine Kathryn Rusch's column, Notes From The Buffer Zone!
