We're baaaack, to quote the movie. Grantville Gazette, Volume 43, up and ready for your reading pleasure, right now.
Karen Bergstrahl's "Farm Vet," a tragedy in one act, which just goes to show that bad things really do happen to good people. Sumitra Patel traveled a long way, only to wind up traveling even farther with the Ring of Fire. Read about it in Thomas Richardson's "She Came Out (of India)."
Author David Dingwall is back with his English romance addict, in "Snared by a Good Book," our first story to cover two time periods, one in the old time line and one in the new time line caused by the Ring of Fire. And we all dream of winning the lottery, but there's a fella who was once in Grantville who knows that winning makes as many problems as it solves. Read about him in Kerryn Offord's "The Marked Man."
Our country and bluegrass singers are back in "Gloom, Despair and Agony on You" by Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett. And they're having a real good time, mostly. Rainer Prem writes "Ein feste Burg, Episode Four" for this issue and we guarantee that things are going off in a quite different direction that you might expect. "Second Chance Bird, Episode Eleven" by Garrett W. Vance stars one of our favorite characters, Pam Miller, and continues the saga of the dodos.
Iver P. Cooper is telling us about airship propulsion systems, this time in "Airship Propulsion, Part Three, Steaming Along." And Ronald D. Ferguson won the toss for our Universe Annex story for the issue, "Eavesdropping at the Keyhole to Forever."
And Kristine Kathryn Rusch has words to say about "Heroes Rising," in her Notes From the Buffer Zone column.
It's all good and it's all ready for you.
