ST NEWS Volume 7 Issue 2
Released on Saturday, May 9th 1992
Dedicated to Metallica


- WELCOME, WELCOME! -


 And yet another staggeringly enthusiastic "HELLO" to the latest
contributions of the "ST NEWS" editorial staff to the world of Public
Domain! Of course, we are here referring to the very thing that
accompanies this "READ_ME" file on the disk, i.e. "ST NEWS" Volume 7
Issue 2. We need not go through extensive lenghts to explain to you
that, once again, several things happened during its finishing: 1) We
had fun, 2) We got drunk, 3) We listened to lotsa music, 4) We watched
TV, 5) We played some games and 6) We ate and slept. I think we even
breathed a bit in between.
 It was finished on May 9th 1992, which is not exactly but reasonable
not too far away from the sixth birthday of this little disk mag of
ours. But let this not be of any hindrance to you whatsoever!
 Let's get down to the bits you are invited to include in your
catalogue in case you're running a Public Domain library...


- WHAT'S IN IT, THEN?! -


 A REFRESHING LOAD OF ADVENTURE SOLUTIONS! (INCLUDING "LOOM", "ICEMAN"
AND THOSE BIG...ER..."ELVIRA"!)

 THE PENULTIMATE ST DISK MAGAZINE ROUNDUP! (WITH OVER *FORTYTWO* DISK
MAGAZINE ENTRIES AND THEIR FULL SPECIFICATIONS!)

 HANDS-ON REVIEW OF THE ST BOOK, ATARI'S HOTTEST NEW NOTEBOOK ST! (AS
WELL AS SOME NEWS ON THE ATARI FALCON 030 AND *EVEN MORE*!)

 AN EXCITING REPORT ON THE SWEDISH *MEGA LEIF CONVENTION* HELD
RECENTLY! (NOT TO MENTION THE HARDSHIPS OF GETTING THERE INVOLVING
CRUEL CULPRIT CUSTOMS AND ATROCIOUSLY AMASSED AVALANCHES!)

 THE ULTIMATE GAME CHEATS ENCYCLOPAEDIA! (FEATURING CHEATS TO NEARLY
*300* ST GAMES! IF NOT INCLUDED HERE, CHEATS PROBABLY *DO NOT EXIST*!)

 LLAMASOFT'S *FULL SHAREWARE GAME* "REVENGE OF THE MUTANT CAMELS"!
(WHICH ALSO HAPPENS TO BE QUITE BRILLIANT AND GRABWORTHY!)

 RECENT REVIEWS: "PROTEXT", "PROFLIGHT", "MORTIMER PLUS" AND
"AMBERSTAR"! (AND SOME MORE, ACTUALLY!)

 A DEPACKER TO DECOMPRESS PACKED FILES! (MIKE MEE'S "MULTI
DEPACKER"!)

 EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT METALLICA BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK!
(INCLUDING *THE MOST COMPLETE METALLICA DISCOGRAPHY EVER*!)

 AN EXCITINGLY ENCHANTING CONTINUATION OF "OH YEAH"! (CALLED,
REMARKABLY, "OH YEAH II"!)

 AN EXTREMELY AND UTTERLY TOTALLY IMPORTANT MESSAGE!

 THE USUAL TIDBITS IN BETWEEN AND MINGLED THROUGH THE WHOLE LOT!
(MUSIC: FEAR OF GOD, METALLICA, PARADISE LOST AND PAUL GILBERT AMONG
OTHERS!)


- HOW SHOULD THE DARNED THING BE COPIED? -


 It's all awfully simply really. All you need to do is make use of a
decent copier - what about "FCopy" for a change? That'll do the job.
 Of course, "ST NEWS" is very much Public Domain and you should spread
the disk - not just the word!


- LETTERS FROM THE EDGE RETURNED! -


 Some of you may recall me being rather desperate in the previous
issue of "ST NEWS" with regard to stuff I expected one day to receive
from the Software Saint, Jeff Minter.
 Well, he has written back, showing that I was seriously wrong with my
statement about him not taking corresponding seriously! He wrote an
elaborate letter and was generally being a very nice person.
 Thanks, man! I hope my hassles and threats of joining the Sheep-and-
Llama Obliteration Front weren't taken personally (nor too seriously)!
 So far this.


- WRITE TO US! -


 This entire "READ_ME" file was trash. It was written in a completely
stupid style that is normally employed by rap song writers or other
lowlife persons roaming the earth. All of this has a cause, however:
To provoke you into writing for "ST NEWS". Never before has an issue
of "ST NEWS" been finished with such a high percentage of third-party
material in it (partly taken from other disk mags with whom we have an
agreement, and partly original). We believe this is a good thing, as
it keeps the mag versatile and very much alive! Different writing
styles are more appealing, and you can rest assure that we will try to
continue this trend. Especially with the disk magazine market having
become more competitive ("STEN", "Maggie" and "The Untouchables Disk
Mag" to mention but a few), we constantly need to be on the cutting
edge of things (ALL things!).
 We are therefore seeking people who wouldn't mind seeing their
 writings published in our mag. Quality is highly sought after, of
 course, so please write something you'd be proud of yourself - so
 that we all together can be proud of yet another new issue of "ST
 NEWS". The good thing of getting an article published in "ST NEWS"
 of course, apart from global fame, will be that you get the issue
 in question mailed to your home WITHIN A WEEK after it's finished!
 Is there a better way of non-monetary gratitude?
 No?
 Thought so.
 Well, we will really quit with this now. So bye then.

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