Publisher's Summary

Take a town full of West Virginia coal miners, 17th century nobility, one of the longest and bloodiest wars in history, d'Artagnan (without the three musketeers), Blaise Pascal, Rene Descartes, Galileo, Oliver Cromwell, and Gustav II Adolph. Shake well and simmer for thirteen years.

Eric Flint's world of 1632 is an amazing and complex alternate history universe that split off from ours one spring day in 2000 and 1631.

The Grantville Singles provide listeners with the opportunity to sample some of our favorite stories from the semi-monthly magazine devoted to the series, The Grantville Gazette. We hope you enjoy them.

In this story Brad Sinor and Tracy Morris explain that Cyrano de Bergerac looks nothing like Steve Martin, but that's ok because Betsy Springer doesn't look much like Daryl Hannah. Still, you know that with Cyrano and d'Artagnan both in Grantville something interesting's going to happen.

A Red Haired Twist

A love, a possible dual and honor all wrapped up. This is a short story based in Grantville dealing with a news reporter, a young French man, a German Blind date. Enjoy and lol at the end.

fun short story

Liked the story line and the characters, but the performance and the way it is written it sounds more like a script from a play than a short story. the fact that it is a short and not full length novel makes it passable. I don't think I could have finished it if it was longer.

Great especially if you want a short story

I love all of the stories connected to the 1632 universe. This is a great short story. I loved fitting one of my favorite series into the little time I had available.
