Kickstarter - Ares Magazine

Got to give a very quick pimp for the new Ares Magazine Kickstarter. There's nothing much like this being published any more, outside of the historical wargaming magazines which come with a game like Strategy & Tactics. If they can make it work in that niche market, I think there may be a way to make it work for science fiction, though I imagine it'll be the game that sells the magazine rather than the short fiction.

I'm still a huge fan of short fiction magazines, buy some of the few that are still published and I collect some of the old ones when I find them. I know I'm in the minority though, so many of the short fiction magazines have gone out of business and the remaining ones don't have enormous subscription numbers from what I have read.

I  hope it succeeds because I'd like to see lots of issues.

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone has had a fun and game filled 2013, I've played a load of interesting stuff and I'm looking forward to lots more gaming in the year to come.

Sadly the blog didn't quite recover from it's quiet period earlier in the year, but it's a New Year and I have some new enthusiasm so I'm going to try and make an effort to start updating the poor thing again. I've no idea what yet, probably some more solo gaming stuff, hopefully some more gaming from the group, might have to open it out into some more computer/video gaming as that has been eating into my time again.

Whatever it is, it'll be something. :)
