    One thought on “Grantville Gazette, Volume 13”

    1. Grantville, WV in 17th century Germany. It's always interesting to read how the various authors blend late 20th century culture with that of 17th century Europe. Real effort on the part of Grantville to observe and sell freedom of religion to the Germans and accept Jews as a respected community within the new Europe that the Americans are building.
