 That's  it,   folks!  I  hope  nonetheless  that  this  list  of
forthcoming  (or not) stuff will cause you to harass your  Public
Domain  Librarian  for  ST  NEWS Volume  10  Issue  2  (i.e.  the
Thirteenth Undead Issue).  Do not expect it until somewhere  late
summer or early autumn!
 If  you feel this is too much time between two issues,  do  feel
free to write a lot of interesting stuff yourself and send it  to
me.  You know the address (and if you don't then simply read this
issue's "Correspondence Address" article). 

Disclaimer
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
