Grantville Gazette 77 Is Out!

It also helps that the signature advance check was enclosed. Still have no idea what the cover will look like (although if Tom Kidd does it, it will […]

Tuesday night the galley proofs for the mass market paperback edition of The Span of Empire arrived from Baen Books, the publisher, and they need the corrections back by first thing Monday morning. So I've been rereading […]
