From the Editor

The centerpiece of our Cruise theme issue is taking shape, and it’s moved the idea in a slightly different direction from our initial thoughts—instead of a commercial cruise, it’s going to center on a noble’s custom-construction yacht. The centerpiece is a “photo essay” tour of the ship; we’d like to see good supporting articles for it—personalities, adventures, a Jump Destination, reviews of relevant Traveller material, and so on. We’ll willingly discuss specifics with interested authors; write to the usual addresses for more info.

We are reliably advised that, due to issues regarding site pricing, there will sadly be no TravellerCON USA in 2013. A new site, near the old one, has been scouted, and we expect that TravellerCON will return in 2014, as good or better than ever. We hope you’ll be able to join us.

As usual, we’d like to see more of just about everything we print. This time, Your Humble Editor’s fancy has turned to fiction, and we’d like to encourage people to write some reviews for the “Off the Table” section of Critics’ Corner. If you’ve ever read a book, and thought “I’d like to see that as a Traveller adventure!”, it’s probably a good book to review for “Off the Table”. Give some thought to doing so.

Finally, a reminder—just because most of our material is “CT-compatible” or system-agnostic, don’t feel that material for Your Favorite Version wouldn’t be welcome—we can only print what people write for us, and if you don’t write for Your Favorite, who will?
