I guess there will be a few mentions and reviews of "The Witch of Waxahachie" now that it's been published in Baen's Universe. Here is what Sam Tomaino had to say on-line at SFRevu, as part of his review of the entire issue:
"Next comes "The Witch of Waxahachie" by Lou Antonelli. Larry Anglen is a newspaper editor in Waxahachie, Texas, near the old super-collider. In this story, set in 1997, an experiment with the equipment sends Larry, two friends and a dog into an alternate universe where the laws of magic, not science, were codified. The Larry of this world is dead but they meet other people who correspond to people in their world. One of them, Penelope Pennoyer is a judge in their world and a sorceress in this one, where Waxahachie is part of the Republic of Texas with Buddy Holly as president. The story has some hilarious in-jokes, which I won't spoil, and is thoroughly enjoyable."
