Grantville Gazette numero 6 was a bit of a surprise for me. Having read volumes 2, 3, and 4, I'd gotten used to the idea that the Grantville Gazettes A) didn't ever actually have any importance to the larger Ring of Fire story, B) were always divided between fiction and non-fiction sections, and C) were generally rather forgettable if mildly entertaining. Thankfully, this entry in the short story collection series set in Eric Flint's Ring of Fire universe is a dramatic improvement. Right at the ...more

I still love this series, and I'm glad to see the universe has blossomed as it has. The inclusion of multiple authors and the online magazine (of which is this a "best of" print edition) provides multiple voices, and helps tell some of the smaller stories of the impact of the americans on the 100 yrs war. I hope, as a result, it will continue to churn out novels and short stories for years to come.

The Grantville Gazette never ceases to please and entertain. I think the best story -- and one that requires little background in the series -- is "Birdwatching" by Garrett W. Vance; nice touching story that hits on how different people would adjust to these extraordinary circumstances.

Finally completed the book. As good as all the others in the series. It is always good to catch up with old favourite ayuthors and characters. Really enjoyed the last half dozen stories by different authors all with a common theme. Come in and enjoy the world of grantville.
Mickey Schulz
Not as good as the others in this series. This is the last book Flint edited before turning it over to someone else. I think, perhaps, because he had gotten to close to the Baen's Bar crew and had a hard time turning down some stories that he really should have.

This is actually a "best of" set of stories from the online editions of Grantville Gazette Volumes 12-17. These are looks at the lives of average Americans and Europeans in the re-created Germany of Flint's 1632 universe.
Friedrich Haas
My favorites : "Birdwatching", "Sailing Upwind", and "Jenny and the King's men". Some others were ok, and some I just got through to finish the book.

Interesting "best of collection" from ARC versions of Grantville Gazette. Most enjoyed by faithful readers of 1632 aficionados, not by new readers.

Strangely attractive. There is something about this trajectory and its fiction that is only twofold degenerate in todays culture.

Don't read this book unless you've been following the series. But for people who have, it's a decent collection of related short stories.
