First, credit where credit is due:

As he did for us in 1633, Mike Spehar wrote the first drafts of all the flying scenes that appear in 1634: The Baltic War. Without his expertise as a pilot, those scenes would have necessarily lacked much of their existing detail.

Bob Gottlieb developed the industrial accident portrayed in Chapters 2 and 3 of the novel, and wrote a rough draft depicting the way it would unfold.

In addition, I'd like to thank:

Michael Barthelemy, for his gorgeous period maps of the Tower of London.

Anette Pedersen, Vincent Coljee and Jens Guld, among others, for their assistance regarding Denmark and Copenhagen in the 17th century.

And the editorial board of the Grantville Gazette, especially Virginia DeMarce and Paula Goodlett, for their careful scrutiny of the manuscript and spotting a number of errors and continuity lapses.

For those readers not familiar with it, the Grantville Gazette is an electronic magazine devoted to the 1632 series. There's an advertisement explaining how to subscribe at the end of the book.
