This was great fun - and happily available in e-format, so I can carry it around on my palm. Now on to "The Ram Rebellion"
The Grantville Gazette III is the third collaborative work set in the '1632verse' in what is best regarded as a canonical sub-series of the popular alternate history that began with the February 2000 publication of the hardcover novel 1632 (novel) by author-historian Eric Flint. Overall it is the fourth anthology in the atypical series which consists of a mish-mash of main novels and anthologies produced under popular demand after publication of the initial novel which was written as a stand-alone work. The internet forum Baen's Bar in the Eric Flint oriented sub-forums 1632 Tech Manual and 1632 Slush figure prominently in the background of these works as is covered in the The Grantville Gazettes main article and are an example of the internet-age Collaborative writing in the literary field.
