DESCRIPTION:

Roland GreenCopyright © American Library Association. Between cover and guns come stories of refugee experience, of a pastor setting up 12 American men to marry Germans and convert to Lutheranism, of the culture shock when a delegation of Benedictines encounters the 1632 town of Grantville, and of the influence of the Ring of Fire on the already lively enough religious controversy at Cambridge. And an essay considers the likely effects of mechanization on Germany's tangled land tenure system. Meanwhile, at the end, the nonfiction contributors launch a series of articles on seventeenth-century firearms, a topic almost as confused and shifting as seventeenth-century religion. All rights reserved. From Booklist The third volume of short fiction and nonfiction from the e-zine Eric Flint spun off from his alterna

A Lutheran pastor schemes to gain new adherents among the Americans. A mysterious cosmic force -- the "Ring of Fire" -- has hurled the town of Grantville from 20th century West Virginia back to 17th century Europe, and into the heart of the Thirty Years War. These and other new stories -- including a new story by Eric Flint himself -- return the reader to one of the most popular series in alternate history science fiction.. Practitioners of 20th century medicine and its 17th century counterpart struggle to find common ground in healing the sick and injured. A Benedictine monk finds a new calling for his order. At the same time, American teenagers conquer new financial worlds when their elders are looking the other way. University students, a restless breed in all centu

But it does tie up some loose ends and is a good read. Another reader confuses nudity with porn, very ignorant as bare breasted fashions were common until the early 1600s and persisted in Venice into the 1800s.The Sound of Music by David Carrico. "Grantville Goodness" according to Jason Talley. This is my favorite of the Grantville Gazettes. It has some of my all time favorite Ring of Fire short stories. "Hell Fighters" and "Pastor Kastenmayer's Revenge" are still fun even if I've already read them five or six times. "Postage Due" is short and amusing and "Hobson's Choice" is really enjoyable due to the way it focuses on down-timer reactions to up-time ideas. "Other People's Money" and "The Sound of Music" also get big points for introducing characters that play big part in future books.Honestly, "If Demons Will Sleep" is the only turkey. What could have been a co. "A most enjoyable read." according to Potluck Queen. I tend to write long reviews, but since much has already been said, here is my own little additionI enjoyed this book, the way it added depth to the characters in the tale of Ring of Fire. Like all of the other anthologies so far in this series, this deals not with the great movements of the times, but the everyday lives of uptimers and downtime German and other commoners and makes the whole 16A most enjoyable read.
