Grantville Gazette 91 is all about how the Ring of Fire has changed things. Virginia DeMarce begins the issue with "There Oughta Be a Law," asking what should be done with items seized during the Thirty Years War. Natalie Silk's story "The Rooster and the Spoon" is next, as a Jewish orange juice business attempts to make a deal with the Fugger. The USE and Venice sit down to talk radio in "Proposal and Counterproposal," by Jack Carroll. Sarah Hays writes about Alyse Ballantine and her kids having to move in "Before the Barbed Wire's Strung.”
We have two continuing serials. In Michael Lockwood's "A Puritan Voice, Part 6," Nicholas meets new friends while recovering. In "The Aethers of Magdeburg, Part 2," by David Carrico and Mark Huston, the plan has gone badly awry.
The Ring of Fire has even affected flags. Mike Nagle begins explaining how in "Flags of the World: The USE, Part 1." Iver P. Cooper resumes a series with "Life at Sea in the Old and New Time Lines, Part 5: Creature Comforts.”
