From the Editor

We do listen to your feedback, and consider Freelance Traveller to always be a work-in-progress. After last issue’s release, we received some email from a new reader who made a good point: there’s a lot of greywall text, making it more difficult to read. His suggestion was to add space between paragraphs, like on the website, and to use graphics to break up the text, as we did with last issue’s “The Smarargian Crisis”. The latter is a bit difficult, when we don’t get a lot of submissions with graphics; consider this a plea for more illustrated articles.

We can, however, tweak the typesetting, and we have—there’s now going to be a small amount of additional space between paragraphs, in addition to the normal paragraph indent. Another change we’re making is to keep the story tops aligned when flowing from column to column and page to page; this means a bit more white space at the top of right-hand columns. And, where we feel we have good ones, we’ll be inserting ‘boxes’ and ‘pull quotes’.

We hope these changes will meet with your approval; please do email the editor and let him know your opinion.
