I'll just echo Grey Lensman - have downloaded them all, like them, and would love to see them all.

I have to say that in terms of layout, art, content, and quality Signal GK is top notch.

Would you like to see more issues or are Ewan and I wasting our time scanning and posting?

What do you think of Signal GK the fanzine?

I downloaded them and liked what I saw.

And I've started indexing and tagging them for RPGnet, to make them easy for people to find in the future:

Yes! (I'm a sucker for old fanzines, though...)

It's much better quality and the density of each issue is much higher than I expected!

Leighton, I know that you cited the problems with infringement upon the copyright of Shadowrun for AZtech but surely one could change enough of it to make it work or at the very least ask WizKids for permission for using a similar concept.

Too much of this background needs to be put into print and I hope that Mongoose are watching. BTW, has anyone bothered to post the Signal GK updates over on the Mongoose boards...as the younglings need to see what fun Traveller was like in the heyday.

Post Update

Leighton is busy putting together a fully pdf'd version of issue 5 which will hopefully see the light of day in a few weeks and there is discussion about continuing with a fully pdf'd version of six.

I will release the missing issues over the next few months and there is a discussion ongoing to see if we can track down some of the old DDT gang (as well as some new victims) to complete the updated Sector library data and hopefully a sector species book and even (SHOCK, HORROR) the possibility of the occasional new issue if there is enough material to justify an annual.

Despite the quiet, there is a lot going on behind the scenes.

Me too, Big sucker for old fanzines. I'm still trying to find some if anyone can help locate certain ones.
Getting Third Imperium from Canada or Signal GK from the UK, or stuff from Australia was a real pain back in the day. I'm still trying to get as many as I can, that's why I gladly offered to help bring SGK to the web.

Finding AAB, Tiffany Star, TTT, and Third Imperium online has been a great thing. I eagerly await Stellar Reaches and Frontier Report, as well as Freelance Traveller. Still I want more....

Kafka,

We've been cross posting etc. but please feel free to add to getting the signal out there...

We've been down the road of trying to get this material officially published and I think we'll now just settle for freely distributing though having it receive a degree of official status would be nice, especially as the number of times we had to change info to try and match... Urgh!

Theo,

we used to have an agreement with Freelance Traveller to distribute in the UK (and they distributedthe signal in the US - bad deal for them given the size of the signal) so I have several of the earlier issues but not sure about breaching copyright.

Next time I'm down in the dungeon i'll check and see if I still have any spare copies and I'll post them on to you...

Re Aztech The only similarity is that name as far as I'm aware but as long as we're not charging for our stuff I doubt anyone would care, really...

For the moment, Free distribution seems to be the way to go.

Jae

Ummm... I don't recall any sort of agreement for cross distribution with SGK in any size, shape or color... Not that I'm averse to such! (I'm Freelance Traveller, and to the best of my knowledge, I always have been, and never was there anyone else who was.)

(I actually think that SGK had ceased publication before I got heavily involved in the Traveller community. Seeing it return is, IMO, not at all a bad thing. Thank you!)
