What if a modern town went back in time a few hundred years? That is the basic premise of the 1632 universe. A small West Virginia town, Grantville, is propelled back to 1632 Franconia, Germany. These up-timers must learn to survive in a less refined time. These are their stories. From official release/information:
Book Description: A mysterious cosmic force—the Ring of Fire—has hurled the town of Grantville from 20th century West Virginia back to 17th century Europe, and into the heart of the Thirty Years War. With their seemingly magical technology, and their radical ideas of freedom and justice, the time-lost West Virginians have allied with Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, to form the Confederated Principalities of Europe, changing the course of history—in ways both small and large.
