It's not like I own the concept.  Start a thread with your version.  I'm sure everyone would love to see it.

We can even run it in a future article as a variant version by a different company.

Tom, I want to thank you for the kind shout out in the magazine.  I was a little afraid I'd flood you with too many submissions.  I appreciate knowing that I was able to help you out of a tight spot.  I'm still working on stuff for the future.  I've got one write up in the que now, and I hope to have a book review of the new Buck Rogers novella done soon.

I realize you probably won't be able to use it all because it's only fair other people get their stuff in too.  But I'll try to give you my best.  Hopefully at least some of it will be good enough.

Again, thanks for publishing me.  It's my first publication credit.

Anything you send in will make it in eventually.  I do try to have a mix of authors in the magazine when I can but if all I have is stuff from a few people, they get lots of page time.  So (and this goes for everybody) send in things as you finish them and we'll get them published.  If we get enough material regularly, we'd even put out more issues and ressurect the Star Frontiersman.

In any case, thank you for your submissions and you're welcome for the shout out.

That's strange (I assume you meant FE, not SE). Your account is still there.  Would you like me to reset your password?

Password reset and I sent you an e-mail with the details.

You do not need an account for the Star Frontiersman, in fact, that site doesn't even have accounts.  We use the same submission queue for both.

I can log in again, thanks... so just upload articles to the one then? 

I have a few I think I just need to do a final read through on, critters and more critters. I have GW1's B's done I think, a new take on the Gluey and the Phase Spider are all about ready. I did some new art... will fight with the computer's scanner this week.

Okay done, they need review and feed back and probably fresh art with the exception of a couple. We may wish to assign different planets of origin to a few as well. 

Uploaded: Barl Nep, Badder (NPC/PC race), Brutorz, Blaash, Ber Lep, Blight, The Gluey/Adherer and Phase Spider conversions.

Everyone start humming National Geographic's theme song (Jupiter)... I have a lot more to get done.

Hi TerlObar:

I just submitted my Robots Rules of Order Revised story to you. I will try to source some artwork for you, though I have several other writing assignments to finish during the next week.

PS, I am looking at talking to someone at Vivos!, a company that makes luxury apocalypse survival shelters, for another possible future story... and one that I can get artwork for.

Best Regards,
Joe Cabadas

No rush on the art.  It's still 2 months until that deadline.
