Grantville Gazette 91 is all about how the Ring of Fire has changed things.

The USE and Venice sit down to talk radio in "Proposal and Counterproposal," by Jack Carroll. Sarah Hays writes about Alyse Ballantine and her kids having to move in "Before the Barbed Wire's Strung.”
We have two continuing serials. In Michael Lockwood's "A Puritan Voice, Part 6," Nicholas meets new friends while recovering. In "The Aethers of Magdeburg, Part 2," by David Carrico and Mark Huston, the plan has gone badly awry.
The Ring of Fire has even affected flags. Mike Nagle begins explaining how in "Flags of the World: The USE, Part 1." Iver P. Cooper resumes a series with "Life at Sea in the Old and New Time Lines, Part 5: Creature Comforts.”
