Lots of good stories this issue and we hope you enjoy them. Kerryn Offord tells us about a Viet Nam vet whose nightmares come back all of a sudden in "Trapped." On a lighter note, Mitch Townsend imagines the new bookmobile—although it has to be admitted that "mobile" is a bit different in 1632. See his "The Rolling Library."
Terry Howard and Esther Merriken are back with their artists, expanding the business greatly, in "Franklin's Monsters, Act II, Daumenkino Days." Good old Johan is still learning how to be married in the final episode of Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett's "Bartley's Man." And Rainer Prem continues his restoration work with "Ein Feste Burg, Episode 9."
Nonfiction by Iver P. Cooper tells us about warmaking with "Naval Armament and Armor, Part 4: Implements of Destruction." Lots of good info there. Garrett W. Vance, after finishing his previous serial in 1632, has moved over to Time Spike and serves up "Evening in Cahokia, Part Two," which has an abundance of adventure—including vicious monsters.
Kary English, in the Universe Annex, gives us "Flight of the Kikayon," a real heart-wrencher. And Kristine Kathryn Rusch provides "A Universe of Fiction" in her Notes From The Buffer Zone.
Grantville Gazette, Volume 48 is ready now.
