Eric Flint's 1632 & Beyond: Alternate History Stories

1632 & Beyond Issue #003


The Magdeburg Messenger

(1632 Fiction)

This issue’s cover story is “Cassini Rounds Third.”  Robert E. Waters continues the saga of Giovanni Cassini.  Up-time, he was a famous astronomer.  Down-time, he’s a kid who wants to play ball.  He might get to stay in Grantville, but is it really for the love of the game?

Next is Bethanne Kim’s “A Fitting Tribute.”  The Ugolinis make memorial stones and other markers.  That’s not something the average down-timer is used to.  Is there a way to save the family business?

Marc Tyrrell concludes “A Meeting at Midsummer” with Part 2.  Paul, Gagnrad, Helmut, Captain von Thieren, and the Inquisitor Father Salazar are all on different missions.  As most of their paths cross near Klettbach, which of them will succeed?

An evening at a very good restaurant leads to “A Disturbance at the Nishioka House.”  Garrett W. Vance’s tale takes place immediately after “Ill-Met in the Marshes” from Issue 1.  Plus, there’s a cat.
