Volume 69 of the Grantville Gazette begins with David Carrico's "Drumline," a story submitted to a down-time magazine. Next we have "Dr. Phil Rules the Waves" by Kerryn Offord and Rick Boatright. Tim Roesch gives us "Good German Axes." And Szántai Gábor introduces some Hungarian characters in "A Szekler in a Kilt." Our serials are "Etude, Part 3" by David Carrico, featuring Johann Bach, and "The Long Road Home, Part 2" by Nick Lorance, featuring Sergeant Hartmann. We have the seventh set of outtakes from 1635: The Papal Stakes in Chuck Gannon's "About the Faces on the Cutting Room Floor, Number Seven: The Exception That Makes the Rule: Cutting a Chase Scene." We also have Szántai Gábor's "Hungary and Transylvania, Part 3: Cities and Castles." It's loaded with information on key locations. Kristine Kathryn Rusch gives us an excellent "Notes from The Buffer Zone: History and Its Alternates."
