Well, here we are, November 2013, with the fiftieth volume of the Grantville Gazette! Quite the milestone!
This volume contains stories by both old and new authors. Check out Terry Howard and Esther Merriken's "Franklin's Monster, Act III, The Power to Fly" for an interesting take on art, as well as Robert E. Waters and Meriah Crawford's "The Multi-Colored King" for another equally interesting take on art. Bjorn Hasseler brings us "The Winter of '35," a story about a really, really busy day in Grantville. "A Season of Change" is Kerryn Offord's offering, and it's back to our favorite print shop.
Rainer Prem is back with "Ein Feste Burg, Episode 11," this time bringing romance—and fast food—to a different part of Germany. Jack Carroll and Edith Wild continue their serial, "The Undergraduate, Episode Two." All of them ramping up the interest for us all.
Iver Cooper has info about the plague, which he brings to light in "Infectious Pestilence: Part 1, Coping with Plague in Early Modern Europe." It makes a person happy to not have to worry about that! Garrett W. Vance gives us "Time Spike: The Mysterious Mesa, Part One," an interesting story set in a very difficult place.
Edith Maor wrote "Global Village," a story that gives quite another perspective on eyeglasses. Someday we may all be calling people who don't wear them "old two eyes." And Kristine Kathryn Rusch, in her column Notes From The Buffer Zone, discusses "Editing Changes," about how editors are different and have their own impact on popular magazines.
Step right up. Read all about it. Grantville Gazette, Volume 50, is ready now.
