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.
