|Not Quite #11|
#11 is completed and has bee mailed out. In the emailboxes of my subscribers. Paid Subscriptions and "House Copies" have all gone. The cover is a great piece of art by Fred Lang, dedicated Joruni.
#12 will focus on the promotional drive to get people to leave lovely, science fiction Earth to go to a distant world to live under the primitive conditions of 21st Century Medicine and 20th Century - or earlier - technologies. But you can't get a 200-acre homestead on earth anymore, and the natives have put strict limits on the amount of land available to the immigrants. The United Nations and Colonies Office of Colonial Authority have made the information and applications available for would-be colonists, as residential frontier-person or contract workers to populate research and trading stations. Way retro-formats like to-print documents, but published in all the regular languages.
But more on that later.
