Halloween is past, so it's now November. Must be time for a new Grantville Gazette!
Two new authors for this issue, Phillip Riviezzo, who presents "A Sucker Born Every Minute," a quote I'm sure a lot of people have heard, and Robert Noxon, with the hilarious "Grantville is Crazy." Which I'm sure a lot of people think, actually.
Robert Waters is back, this time with "Letters from Inchon," which will likely tug the heartstrings of just about anyone. Terry Howard's "Bagging the Bag Girl" might not touch anyone's heartstrings, but I bet you'll like it anyway. And Bjorn Hasseler is still dealing with those Saxons in "The Saale Levies," quite an interesting story that keeps us wondering what's going to happen next.
Virginia DeMarce is still letting Monsieur Gaston roam about Europe, alas. And what the man drags around with him is no fun at all. Rainer Prem continues "Ein feste Burg" with Episode 17. We've got all sorts of stuff going on in Freiberg this episode.
An Important (yes, I used the cap deliberately) family in seventeenth-century Germany, the Fuggers, have lots of history. Deborah Stutman-Brickey, another new author for the Gazette, shares some of that.
Kristine Kathryn Rusch has done some tremendous output in her career, and she tells us about it in her Notes From The Buffer Zone Column, "I Can't Believe I Wrote the Whole Thing."
Last, and surely not least, Michael Barretta offers "Capturing the Light," a story the editors of the Gazette feel is surely award worthy.
Have fun. Have a good read. Grantville Gazette, Volume 56 is ready.
Ah, the new year! And a new issue of the Grantville Gazette, ready right now.
We have three new authors with us this issue, Nick Lorance with "Synchronicity," a musical story, Joshua Varner with "Asking the Right Question," all about spin, and Jackie Britton Lopatin with "Squarely the Best" and "Designing a Square-holed Flute," a story about flutes and an article on how to make one.
Kerryn Offord is back with us with "A Trip to Glomfjord," another interesting tale. Bjorn Hasseler offers "Snow White and the r-ARC," a handy story about getting the very latest reading material. Terry Howard gives us "The Djinn are Lazy," all about figuring out, well, a gin.
Virginia DeMarce finishes her serial "An Uneasy Kind of Peace," with Episode Six. And Rainer Prem is plugging away on his "Ein feste Burg" with Episode 18.
Thomas Mays provides a tale of science fiction with "Bumped," and Kristine Kathryn Rusch is getting annoyed by all the "Infighting."
There you go. Start the new year off just right with Grantville Gazette, Issue 57.
March is, of course, coming in like a lion, and we figure it's time for something to while away the cold and windy hours. So, how about another Grantville Gazette?
Terry Howard offers "Buy the Grammar," which is only partly about buying, and John F. Harvell has a "Mission in the Baltic," an interesting mission at that. Jack Carroll and Terry Howard have combined their talents in "No, John, No!" which has people questioning taboos. As well they should.
Bjorn Hasseler writes "The Red Lion Regiment, Episode One." It tells us about how the Seven Dwarves in some of his earlier stories got their rep. And Rainer Prem has the longest running serial in Gazette history, with Episode 19 of "Ein Feste Burg." Longest running because it's been intriguing all along and continues to be.
Nonfiction "Clash of Cultures—School Systems at (the) Stake" is up to Part 3, and tremendously informative. Kristine Kathryn Rusch sent us "Generations," which has to do with the generations of science fiction lovers out there.
Garrett W. Vance is writing about "The Mysterious Mesa" and is up to "Part Six: A Serpent in the Garden." Not something I want to meet in my garden, lemme promise you.
