From the Editor

This is a Theme Issue, for Free Traders, to match the theme of this year’s TravellerCON/USA, which is scheduled to occur during the cover dates for this issue. There is an extraordinarily high number of reprinted articles, because there was less response than I had hoped to my call for articles that would have fit the theme. Worse, a perusal of the Freelance Traveller corpus, including articles predating the magazine, seems to point to a generally low level of interest in Merchant campaigns—while I am not the only author that has written merchant-focus articles, I do seem to be the one who has done so the most, and that shows in the number of times my own byline appears in this issue. Let it be noted that I don’t like it when Freelance Traveller starts looking like it’s About Me. I never intended that. That said, I still think the issue should prove no worse than any other.

It does, however, look like next issue will be a more normal distribution of authors and topics, though there will be at least my after-action report from TravellerCON—and I encourage anyone who goes to write an AAR of their own (and if you send it to me, it’ll get published, especially if it has pictures)! See you next issue!
