From the Editor:

And here we go again! Grantville Gazette, Volume 44 is ready.

A new author for us, one Alistair Kimble, presents “The Maltese Crux.” Bogart would be proud to play one of these roles. Robert E. Waters is back with “The River of His Memory” and we’ll guarantee that you’ll be touched by it. On the ironic side, Kerryn Offord has provided “I’m From the Government, and I’m Here to Help.” And haven’t we all heard that joke!

Bradley H. Sinor and Tracy S. Morris are back, this time with “It’s About Time: An Ode.” Oh, what kinds of trouble Betsy can get into! Jack Carroll, in a more serious vein, provides “A Capital Idea,” and yes, they’re talking about capital and capitols both.

Enrico Toro and David Carrico are continuing their series with “Euterpe, Part Five,” and an excellent episode it is. Always good to hear from the opera contingent, isn’t it? Rainer Prem continues his story with “Ein Feste Burg, Episode Five,” and there’s a good bit of swashing and buckling in this one. Garrett W. Vance offers “Second Chance Bird, Episode Twelve,” with Pam and crew finally reaching some form of safety.

Nonfiction this issue is Iver P. Cooper’s “Airship Propulsion, Part Four: The Aereon,” which for some reason leaves this editor thinking of dolphins moving up and down. Only this time, they’ll move through an ocean of air.

Amanda E. Forrest gives us a touching story called “Paper Baby,” and Kristine Kathryn Rusch is going “Crazy” in her column Notes From the Buffer Zone. We leave it to the reader to decide if it’s crazy-crazy or crazy-smart, but we know where we’re voting!

Here you go. Grantville Gazette, Volume 44, ready now.
