New Frontiers

Issue 21 - October 2013

The last issue literally flew out of our server to all points of the globe. Feedback was good, City results are starting to go in the right direction, so here goes with another almost all new issue. The Editor Speaks. Enjoy the game.

In case you're wondering, Ricky Sbragia, Malcolm Huntington and Brian Houghton bought every issue of the paper version in the 1990s. Ricky gave me a 1 every time and said keep the change for the next issue; next issue another pound. Both MH and DC often passed a complimentary comment along the lines of keep up the good work.
