And . . . we're baaaccckkk! Grantville Gazette, Volume 41 is ready! This issue has a lot of real treats for our readers. Walt Boyes gives us "It's Just a Dog," about a real special sort of dog, much like Terry Howard's "German Puddles," also in this issue is about a real special sort of dog. "Wings of Chance" by Kerryn Offord, however, isn't exactly about flying eagles. More about flying folks, actually . . . Bradley H. Sinor and Susan P. Sinor bring us "All for One," their first co-written story for the Grantville Gazette. Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett are back with "Fresno Construction," and, no, it's not set in California. Garrett W. Vance offers "Second Chance Bird, Episode Ten," the longest running serial we've published, and Rainer Prem is back with "Ein feste Burg, Episode Two," our newest serial. And Tim Roesch's nursing student is back in "Letters Home, 5." Nonfiction this month is Iver P. Cooper's "Airship Propulsaion, Part One: Thrust and Drag," which has several more episodes coming in future issues. And Rainer Prem provided "Language Societies of the Seventeenth Century," a look at some of what people in the "back then" spent their time doing. Our Time Spike offering is "The Swarm" by David W. Dove. Boy, those bugs will give you the shivers. Really neat columns from Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Bud Webster this issue. Kristine is "So Fan-girl" in Notes from the Buffer Zone and Bud is discussing "Secret Crocodiles and Strange Doings (Or Sometimes the Magic Really Works), which discusses R. A. Lafferty. Have fun!
