From the Editor

We’d posted publicly that there would be no April issue; this was because the editor had some medical issues to deal with. (Note: kidney stones are Not Fun.) However, he bounced back pretty fast, and while it really was too late to get an April issue out, converting the partially-done April issue into a combined April/May issue was feasible, and the decision was made to do so.

We’re still running short of material in several sections; as noted last month, this makes it difficult to put together a reasonably well-rounded issue. Please give some thought to trying your hand at material for Less Dangerous Game, Kurishdam (any subsection), In A Store Near You (especially Handle With Care, The Promenade, and The Arms Bazaar), articles for the “Cruise” theme issue, and anything for 2300AD.

Having said that, a reminder: Freelance Traveller encorages authors and potential authors to consider paying venues for their work—if you get an expression of interest in your work from Mongoose, SJGames, or some other Traveller publisher, and they’re willing to pay, go for it. We can’t pay, so we don’t feel we have any sort of claim on you or your work.
