“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
I am an engineer. I don’t feel things — waste of time and effort. But my coworkers and vendors feel something. They are energized about this project. They’re broadcasting the energy. And I feel it.
We’re on a mission.
What are the mission parameters? What are we trying to accomplish? Where are we going? How long will it take to get there?
All good questions, and I hope to find answers as we venture down the path set before us.
The big idea is to fill a void — to publish a new magazine that combines a stand-alone, unique, playable board game in every issue with a collection of fiction. The focus is science fiction, but we aren’t zealots. We will publish select other genres, including pulp adventure, fantasy, and alternative history.
We would like to squeeze out at least four issues per year, with each issue crammed full of enough amazing content to keep you busy until you receive the next issue.
We are soliciting content — games, fiction, and art — we need it all.
Our first attention is to funding, and our first method of funding the project is Kickstarter. We’ll let you know when our Kickstarter release is getting close.
If our Kickstarter effort is successful, we should go to press on Issue 01 within about 90 days of its conclusion.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to rewarding it, in spades.
