In this story Robert Waters braids two tales of family and war, in the 17th century and the Thirty Years war, and in the 20th century and World War Two, Throughout both tales run the ties of family that bind us. Robert provides another unique eye into the creation of the new world of 1632.

    Story
    "Grantville comes to Audible and boy am I chuffed."

    The Grantville Gaette is and object of reverence anoung 1632 Ring of Fire fans. Although there are over 50 full electronic issues avaialble with up to 12 stories in each this is a single story that is abstracted from the Gazette for Amazon print sale. It is pricey and i hope that full issues become available so we get a real book credit worth of story.

    Having said that, this is a good cultural juxaposition story set in the 1632 universe, very well written especially given it is from a fanzine. The narration and recording is par with all of the the other ROF titles not outstanding by any stretch, especially compared to the 5 recorded for the Library of Congress NLS program (of course unless you are blind you wont hear them), however the recordings are workmanlike and you can warm to initial and repeated listenings.

    Audio books are still in their infancy compared to other recorded media, the best, most experienced producers and narrators toil in the non commerical world and haven't crossed over yet save for a few, that is something to hope for.

    Grantville Rocks.
