Well....what is there to say about what will (or may) appear in
the next issue? Since we cannot really look in the future and
since we're kinda 'undead', there really isn't much use for the
sheer presence of this article, is there?
We will stop with ST NEWS when we feel like it. It may be next
time already...
Well, we're actually only talking bull here. Of course there
will be a next issue of ST NEWS - what did we make it 'undead'
for in the first place if it wasn't for continuing it?
The next issue of ST NEWS can be expected in late January or
somewhere in February of 1991. We hope to have gained enough
material at that time, which will largely consist of 'spontaneous
contributions' by various people given at the ST NEWS
International Christmas Coding Conference (about which you will
be able to read lots somewhere else in this issue). Also, it will
contain the infamous real-time articles written during that
Quite a lot, altogether. We also have the usual software reviews
("Power Monger", "Lemmings", "Carthage", "Obitus" and more) and
useful little programs lined up, but we may use them for the
second issue to appear in 1991, as we are really keen on totally
dedicating the upcoming issue to the Coding Convention. They
include possible improved versions of the "Ice Packer", as well
as a new packer called "Fire Packer". "Superboot 6.0" may also
be included, whereas the software reviews will surely include
some hot stuff as usual. We have in the mean time found the
address of Douglas "Hitchhiker's Guide" Adams, so that will
hopefully result in an interview. At the Coding Convention, we
also hope to get our hands on a new version of the ST TOS (TOS
1.7) that was made by TEX, TNT Crew and Level 16. It is very
good, all Atari patches have been included and many more things
have been added that now no longer require you to have loads of
little programs installed in your AUTO folder.
And there's to be more, of course!
But only time will tell, and since neither of us are called
this, we won't.

Nonetheless, we hoped you really enjoyed this new 'undead' issue
of ST NEWS. All we can say is that, as usual, we liked making it.
Please send us a letter or something of you think that ST NEWS
has not particularly gone worse since the previous issue. See ya
around (which means either on the Coding Convention or in ST NEWS
Volume 6 Issue 1 - the second 'undead' issue).

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.
