This Issue’s Cover- 97

Inspired by Iver P. Cooper’s The Ghost Galleon and his ongoing fascinating accounts of the Japanese exploration and settlement of North America in the 17th Century of the New Timeline. The image is not meant to depict any actual characters or events in Iver’s works, but it evokes the idea of the meetings of different cultures that might take place in that world, as captured by a Grantville-made camera.
