New blood joins this earth
And quickly he's subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
                              "The Unforgiven" part I - Metallica


 Back  in the days of old (i.e.  1988 and early 1989),  we had  a
network of more than 20 international distributors that took care
that ST NEWS was obtainable all over the world.
 Unfortunately,  their  enthusiasm wore off quicker than  we  had
anticipated,  and only some of them are now still active. You can
write to these people to get other issues of ST NEWS,  and  their
addresses are supplied in the "Colofon" article.
 Please  note  that they generally require an SAE and a  disk  to
send issues to you in.  If you live in another country then they,
then  please  supply  them with  sufficient  International  Reply
Coupons - NO stamps!
 If in doubt, you can always order them by sending SAE + IRC's to
the ST NEWS correspondence address.  A donation now and again, of
course, would be welcome.

 About  three quarters of a year ago,  we have made the  ST  NEWS
Final  Compendium.  This comprises the most interesting  articles
ever featured in ST NEWS Volumes 1 through 5,  and is TWO double-
sided disks in size.  After that, we have only made three ST NEWS
issues including the one you're reading now.
 If you want to get in touch with more ST NEWS,  this is all  you
have to do:  Send 4 disks with enough International Reply Coupons
to us, and ask for the ST NEWS Final Compendium, ST NEWS Volume 5
Issue 2 and ST NEWS Volume 6 Issue 1.
 That should suffice to get you in touch.
 If  you want to get earlier issues,  you can get these as  well.
Here's  a list of issues.  Each line is a disk,  except  for  the
Final Compendium.

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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.
