Frontier Explorer - Issue 18

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $0.00

Hello Explorers!

Frontier Explorer issue 18 is now available. This issue is focused on spacecraft (we have four new ones) and optional rules for the Knight Hawks board game. In addition we have a variety of campaign background material along with the usual Jurak Hangna articles and comics.

This issue took a little bit longer to put together because I had an absolute crazy last four weeks including taking my end of program exam for my Masters of Library and Information Science degree (writing 3 research papers in a single week), and then my day job hit me with having to teach an average of eight classes a week for the last 3 weeks. And my wife was out of town for one of those weeks at a pair of astronomy and physics conferences. Like I said it's been a bit crazy.

In any case, the issue is out and I was quite happy with the mix of articles. I hope you enjoy it. The full article list is:

  • Top 10 Small Party Ships of Science Fiction
  • Ships of the Frontier: TSC Magdalina – SC-181 Courier
  • Posita and Negato The Traveling Moons
  • Atlantic Class Freighter
  • Using the Varda in Star Frontiers
  • A Change in Orbit
  • Titan Rising: 2299 #11
  • Atlas Manufacturing Corporation “Comet”
  • Bandoliers From Bandits
  • New Era Commercial Survey Module: CMS-GPS
  • The Miniature Lossodragon
  • Alternate Movement Rules for Knight Hawks
  • Grimz Guide Comic #18

The Frontier Explorer is now listed as a “Pay What You Want” product.  As always, the Frontier Explorer is free (and always will be) and you don’t have to feel guilty about just downloading it and enjoying it for free.  Please do.  That said, if you want to help support the magazine, the pay what you want option allows you to make a contribution. Think of it as a “tip jar” or donation plate.  Just don’t feel like you need to make a contribution.

Yeah, I wish the publisher gave all his stuff away for free, too - maybe doing editing in the local library by day, and sleeping under a bridge at night.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
