Welcome back to the Grantville Gazette, the ongoing stories of . . . well, just about everything that's happening in 1632 Europe. Grantville Gazette, Volume—count 'em—11. For an experiment, it sure has worked out well. Volume 11 is our first professional issue, meaning that it's the first time we've paid professional rates to our authors, something Eric Flint intended from the beginning. We're pretty proud to have reached this point. We've got a bit of everything in this issue, from perceived betrayal to the reaction to perceived charity, an almost epidemic to the search for treasure, what's going on it Russia to what's going on in Greenland. Fiction, non-fiction, you name it, we've got it. Come on in and take a look. Then go write us a story. After all, that's what every author in this issue did. Turns out that's a bit addictive . . . but we don't mind.
