Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

           SOON COMING IN "ST NEWS" - VOLUME 6 ISSUE 3
                 (ER...THE FOURTH UNDEAD ISSUE!)

                      by Richard Karsmakers

 Instead  of  all that bullshit you could find  in  the  previous
issue's "Soon Coming" article,  I would now rather prefer to  get
right down to business immediately.
 Sorry for those of you that had expected more interrupts and all
that crazy shit.

 So what may we offer in the next issue of this altogether  maybe
not all too unremarkable disk magazine called ST NEWS?
 I have reason to believe that Mr. Douglas Adams is back from his
visit to France for a long while already,  and I sincerely  doubt
whether  he  will  ever have the decency to  write  back  to  the
interview  I sent him.  So he's an arrogant sod anyway.  But  his
last book, "Last chance to see..." should be read nonetheless.
 Let's  cut  this  crap and get all this shit down  in  a  clear,
readable  form  (thus making sure you don't have to  weed  though
enormous amounts of proze to filter it out).

                           Solutions:
                           The Krystal
                       (and probably more)

                            Reviews:
                          Speedball II
                            Simulcra
              (If Jurie ever gets his act together)
                           The Panther
          (The acclaimed new games console from Atari)
                           Lemmings II
             (Extra levels for the game "Lemmings")
                          Armour-Geddon
(What's rumoured to be a "Carrier Command" clone from Psygnosis)
                             Atomino
                        Monster Business
     (The first real Eclipse game, coded by Oxygene of TLB)
                       The Atari MEGA STE
                        (By Torbjørn Ose)
                The Delta Force ICC #2 Party Demo
                    The First STabloid Issue

                            Features:
      More fantasy fiction/science fiction/cyberpunk drivel
     (No offense, Mr, Special Master Editor and Nutty Snake,
           for I'll probably write some of it myself)
                  Interview with Douglas Adams
(If he ever writes back which,  let's face it, he probably won't)
         A Pilgrimage to the Plantiac Distillery Part II
     The First Volume of the MERCENARY TALES text adventures
                   The Esion XLI Soundtracker
      (Which is a Whole Lot better than any other Tracker)
              Some rather humorous hidden material
      (Some of which taken from the 845 Kb Crazy Letter we
          recently received from the Nutty Norwegians)

                           Education:
                        Crimson's Demise
          (Which he told me will be fingerlickin' good)
                       GfA/MC68000 Tricks
                            (Likely)
          Formatting 11 sectors per track in GfA Basic
                         (By Kai & Geir)

         And probably some stuff about viruses on the ST
                           (As usual)

 That's it,  chums!  I hope nonetheless that this meagre list  of
forthcoming  (or not) stuff will cause you to harass your  Public
Domain  Librarian  for  ST  NEWS  Volume  6  Issue  3  (i.e.  the
Fourth  Undead  Issue).  Then again,  that may  become  Volume  7
Issue I if things go too slowly...
 May  the spice be with you (can you tell I'm reading the  "Dune"
chronicles?)!

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues.
