Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

Welcome to the long awaited issue, celebrating the 30th “Anniversary” of Star Frontiers.

We started out this year in celebration with a Virtual Con in March. Thank you to all who helped set it up, and to everyone who participated. We had participation from coast to coast.

As you can see, there have been a few changes to the Star Frontiersman. We have a new layout (crafted by Bill Logan in a secret PGC lab located far below the bowls of their main building at Point True) and a new editor, William Douglass.

Hi I’m William, a.k.a. Karxan on the starfrontiers.us site. I will be heading up the next few issues and will continue the high-quality that is expected for our community webzine.

As promised in the last issue, we are starting out with a great interview in celebration of Star Frontiers by none other than Zeb Cook!

Also, look forward to a future issue with a surprise contribution from Steve Winter.

Raise your dice hand high!
