I’ve accomplished a previously-unrevealed goal for Freelance Traveller, one which I resolved to try for when I announced the shift to six larger issues per year instead of 12 smaller ones: I’ve managed to get on schedule so that you have the issue in your hands at the start of the cover date period, instead of the middle. Hopefully, with the longer lead time between issues, and with continued (or, preferably, increased) contributions from you, my readers, I should have little trouble staying on that schedule.

This is a good opportunity to plug the idea of “Theme Issues” again—they’re something I like doing, even better than getting great articles that make it hard to decide on an issue’s Featured Article. I have several themes lined up, including one whose publication will have to wait on a long-hoped-for product: Prime Directive Traveller. Even so, I’d like people to start writing for that theme, and also for any and all of the other themes lined up: Dark Imperium, where the velvet glove is a little more threadbare, and the iron fist a bit more visible; The Cruise, where the focus is on the liner, the passengers, and the destination; and Space City, where the focus is on the development and expansion of a spaceside starport, and what it’s like.
