Things just keep getting more and more interesting in Grantville and environs. Shakespeare's grandsons have popped back up, with the very latest in musical entertainment. Read Virginia DeMarce's "Franconia! Parts 2 and 3" for details. Finland? Who's in Finland? For that answer, see "The Mill on theRiver Kymi" by Terry Howard and Mic Sjostrom. For happenings in England and India, try Mark Huston's "The Man in the Pocket," which uses historical characters and Iver P. Cooper's "Gajam Raanni." Back in Grantville itself, try Kerryn Offords "A Change of Hart," where the rather infamous Hart brothers make good. For a change. Meanwhile, life in the merchant navy proceeds apace. Read about it in "A Nerd at Sea" by Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett. Interested in railroads? "If I Had a Hammer" by Kevin and Karen Evans should satisfy. Nonfiction this issue deals with chemistry and rail, with Iver P. Cooper's "Industrial Alchemy, Part 2: Inorganic Chemical Bestiary" and Kevin Evans' "Binding the Land With Steel." Jump in! Enjoy!
