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.
