Eric Flint's 1632 & Beyond: Alternate History Stories

1632 & Beyond Issue #002


Issue 2 of 1632 & Beyond brings more world-wide impacts from the Ring of Fire! Together, they must navigate the new world they’ve been thrust into and come to terms with the drastic changes the Ring of Fire has brought. Follow the story of these brave adventurers as they battle against the odds and try to find a place for themselves in the new world. From samurai in Japan to Wiccan in Grantville, no one is safe from the changes brought by the Ring of Fire.

In our cover story, Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett describe the harrowing escape of the people who earlier helped Anna Lyopova escape from Moscow to the United Sovereign States of Russia. Sean Little takes us to Japan as a samurai as learns his country’s place (and size) in the world. Marc Tyrrell follows the only Wiccan in Grantville as he navigates the changes after the Ring of Fire. George Grant has a series of letters between an up-timer in Grantville and his down-time ancestor in the New England states. Iver Cooper solves the Italian case of who was sending the ciphered messages, and we learn a bit about the science behind various invisible inks. In nonfiction, Bethanne Kim gives us the low-down on medical training down-time. Finally, we have a quick run-down on new and forthcoming 1632verse books.
