  So she went

   ST PAPER FANZINE REVIEW: ST TRIBE BY HOME BREW PUBLICATIONS
                      by Richard Karsmakers

 A  while  ago  I was in the sublimely  happy  position  to  have
bestowed on me a copy of the up-and-coming ST fanzine "ST Tribe".
Unlike  the usual disk magazines that get reviewed in ST NEWS  at
regular pace,  "ST Tribe" is a paper magazine (which you  already
knew, of course, if you've read the title).

 Anyway,  "ST  Tribe" issue 4 (which is the one I got) is an  18-
page  free  fanzine  that covers such  varying  topics  as  games
reviews  and  a hiscore hall of fame to an article  on  satanism,
quizzes, jokes, some poetry and other fun bits.
 Layout,   design   and   artwork   look   semi-professional   to
professional (no wonder,  they do it on a &%$*!  PC) and articles
are  interesting and not too long,  even though their English  is
sometimes perhaps a slight bit too colloquial and wrongly spelled
(but,  hey,  that's  the  kind of thing  I  notice;  most  others
probably wouldn't).

 The trouble with "ST Tribe" is that there isn't much to be  said
about  it  in a review.  As a matter of fact  I've  regretted  my
decision  to do a full review of it already.  It's just a  rather
nice magazine done by enthusiastic people and I think you  should
check  it  out.  It's A4-sized (although they're  thinking  about
doing sortof an A5 booklet thing) and black/white,  and it's  for
free.

 People  interested in the magazine may feel inclined to send  an
A4  envelope with sufficient International Reply Coupons (or  4Op
worth of stamps when in England) to one of the addresses below:

 Stephen Foster (Editor)
 61 Mewburn
 Bretton
 Peterborough PE3 8SG
 England

 Paul Holst
 12 Pyhill
 Bretton
 Peterborough PE3 8QJ
 England

 I'd  like to thank Paul Holst for sending me issue 4 without  me
even having to write in and ask! I wish people would do this more
often rather than the current occasional occasion...

 I  am sorry that this was one of the very shortest reviews  ever
to occur in ST NEWS! Tough luck.

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.
