From the Editor

I’ve not left myself much space for my usual comments here, so I’ll come right to the point: I’m quite pleased to see all the new authors that have submitted material, and you all have my thanks, even if I’m still not quite as good about acknowledging as I promised I’d try to be. The same goes for all the repeat authors who have been sending in new material; once again, thank you. I feel like a bit of a failure when I have to dig back into the archives to fill out an issue; the less of that I do, the better I like it. I just put this magazine together; you make it what it is, and as long as you continue to generate material, I’ll do my best to keep printing it. Thank you, again!

To Absent Friends

While we were working on preparing this issue of Freelance Traveller for you, we received some sad news: On April 16, 2017, Gregory P. Lee passed away suddenly. Mr Lee had been involved in Traveller for many years, authoring such well-received products as Lee’s Guide to Interstellar Adventure (for Classic Traveller) and Cirque (for Traveller5). He also contributed to other Traveller publications and products (occasionally inserting himself as a character, Aramais P. Lee), including Imperiallines and the Galaxiad setting outlined in Traveller5.
