Grantville Gazette 79 starts out in Grantville with Terry Howard's "The Stillborn Voice of John the Baptist," in which John Paul Kindred finds out giving away Bibles is more complicated than he thought. Next, we go to England, where CoC members are struggling with a sweatshop in Caroline Palmer's "Charlotte's Threads." The next stop is France, for "Uprooting the Seed," Tim Sayeau's next story about Marie-Madeleine. Then it's off to Japan for Iver P. Cooper's "Escape From Nagasaki." Thomas K. Scot's "Seeds of Fortune" is about a town in Württemberg whose inhabitants did some traveling of their own. Back in Grantville, Terry Howard shows us that "Everyone Wants to Write," but one story submission has a problem. Sean Little continue one non-fiction series with "The Age of Chapelle: Warship Design After the Ring of Fire, Part 2: Ship-Rigged Sloops of War," and Iver P. Cooper begins another with "The Art of Secret Communication in the 1632 Universe: Part 1, Classical (Manual) Cryptology." Kristine Kathryn Rusch points out that "Fandom Changes" in her Notes from The Buffer Zone column. Walt Boyes talks about new and upcoming releases in Hot Off Eric Flint's Ring of Fire Press! Finally, we return to the Time Spike universe in Garrett W. Vance's "The First Cavalry of the Cretaceous, Part Six: Snakes in the Grass."
