A very good series of books, and I think a must read for those here interested in history, and perhaps a change in it...
Get; 1632, 1633, and 1634
While I've, unfortunatly only read 1633, I WILL be getting the other 2 ASAP.
From the back cover, an exerpt;
American Freedom and Justice VS. 17th Century Tryanny

The new Confederated Principalities of Europe-an alliance between Gustavus,king of Sweden, and the West Virginia town, led by Mike Stearns, which was hurled back through time to the thirty years war- has big problems. As the greatest naval war in european history erupts, Cardinal Richelieu has created an alliance to destroy the CPE, and only American technology can save Gustavus from ruin.
Meanwhile Mikes wife Rebecca is trapped in war-torn Amsterdam, and his sister Rita is imprisoned in the tower of london. And much as Mike wants to reform tryannical 17th-century Europe by sweet reason, he finds comfort in the fact that Julie, who trained as an Olympic marksman, still has her rifle....
-------------------------------------
Basically, A 20th century w. virginia mining town, somehow finds itself transported through a time-warp, to 17th century europe, along with everything one would find in a 20th century town, cars, gas ,firearms, nightvision,trucks,boats, etc....
-------------------------------
I really enjoyed the read, and thought you guys (and girl's) would too....

I have read them all. I bought the online subscription to get the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th volumes of the short stories. The 1st one is in stores.
The 1634 book that has been out is a sideline story. There is a 1634 expected out eventually that will actually continue where 1633 left off. At least that is what I am expecting.

There are a lot of fan fiction stories set in the 1632 universe at http://www.1632.org/Slush.html

Includes discussions of guns, just to keep the thread open.
