    I just finished reading 1635: Music and Murder and enjoyed it. Thanks for describing this colorful new time line of music.

    Please reconsider to attribute fundamental religious reasoning to every single major character over and over again. While it is understandable that most down-timers base their everyday perspective on faith, it is kind of really annoying that the absolute majority of up-timers is taking a religious point of few in their daily lifes. Reading the book I found it really disturbing to be confronted repeatedly with a absolute majority of characters who base their reasoning on religious ideas only. Discussing the book with a friend, we both had the impression that it sometimes leaves the impression of a proselytizing work of art. While many other authors in the series create an interesting contrast between up-time and down-time world views, your work tends to represent the up-timers with a very single minded perspective towards life, faith and philosophy. It would be great to see stories with a significantly more complex approach in the future.

    Thanks for all your good work.

    Kind regards from Munich.

      Hi Peter -

      Thanks for letting me know that you like 1635: Music and Murder.  I do appreciate hearing from readers.  And you're not the only reader in Germany who has let me know he likes these stories.  It amazes me that the book has attracted that much attention.

      Honestly, I don't think I wrote those stories with a monolithic religious attitude from the up-timers.  Marla, yes.  She has some strong religious beliefs, as do her family members.  (Although her brother-in-law, Byron Chieske, is not as ardent in his religion as Marla is.)

      But as to the other up-timers I presented, other than a reference to a deacon and a pastor who never appeared on stage, I really didn't  try to make any of them strongly or overtly religious.

      You do need to understand that a small town like Grantville, in that part of the USA, in the year 2000–the churches would have been very important social centers as well as being centers of faith.  A sizeable percentage of the residents of Grantville would have had fairly solid religious beliefs, and would have practiced them.  Not all, certainly, and even those who did have religious beliefs wouldn't have been unanimous in their doctrine or their doctrine and liturgies.  But strong evidence of Christian faith, yes, would have been there.

      Trust me, I could have written a story that was what you were describing:  one where every up-tmer was a rigid religious person, with everything being done for religious reasons and from religious viewpoints.  But that's not what I wrote.  The stories are actually pretty nuanced.  You might reread them, this time with an eye toward looking at the individuality of each of the up-timers.  I think you'll see more variety there that your first read revealed to you.

      But thanks for reading the book.  And if you haven't already read it, go read 1636: The Devil's Opera.  It picks up basically where 1635: Music and Murder leaves off.
