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
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

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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