Welcome to the long awaited issue, celebrating the 30th “Anniversary” of Star Frontiers.

We started out this year in celebration with a Virtual Con in March. Thank you to all who helped set it up, and to everyone who participated. We had participation from coast to coast.

As you can see, there have been a few changes to the Star Frontiersman. We have a new layout (crafted by Bill Logan in a secret PGC lab located far below the bowls of their main building at Point True) and a new editor, William Douglass. 

Hi I’m William, a.k.a. Karxan on the site. I will be heading up the next few issues and will continue the high-quality that is expected for our community webzine. 

As promised in the last issue, we are starting out with a great interview in celebration of Star Frontiers by none other than Zeb Cook! 

Also, look forward to a future issue with a surprise contribution from Steve Winter.

The Star Frontiersman is now listed as a “Pay What You Want” product.  As always, the Star Frontiersman 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 Star Frontiersman’s active, sister magazine, the Frontier Explorer, and potential future issues of the Star Frontiersman, 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.  If you want to be a regular supporter, you might consider supporting our Patreon campaign as that not only helps support the magazines, it gets you early access to some of the articles and to each finished issue about a week before it becomes generally available.

Original electronic
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.
